In the Faculty Association Meeting on Jan. 11, two important items were discussed regarding the 2019-2020 University Matriculation Calendar and a new Graduate Degree Program.

A Master of Science –Logistics and Supply Chain Management major is a new major that will soon be available to graduate students. The full program potential can be viewed here.

AA believes that there is substantial student demand for such a program, that the program meets a long-standing stated need from employers in the region, and that tuition generated from enrollment in the program will exceed the net additional costs of program delivery,” according to Dr. Pamela Chally, Interim Provost and Vice President of the Academic Affairs.

Currently, there are no courses regarding the new major,  but more information will be released in the coming months.

A draft for the Matriculation Calendar of 2019-2020 has been reviewed with the following changes from prior years:

  • Spring break is not counted as instructional time as it has been.
  • Study Days have been added to spring and fall terms after classes and before final exams.
  • The intercession between summer B term and fall term is one week shorter.
  • There are no days off between Summer A and Summer B sessions. This does not include holidays.
  • Fall terms are proposed to start on Wednesdays rather than Mondays.
  • The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is not going to be counted as an instructional day. This may be due to most students not attending class during this time.

The Matriculation Calendar is not final and needs editing for further clarification.
