IV. Term Code Report from the Task Force
Mark Welsh, Office of Enrollment, presented a term code report. A term code is a time frame of dates of semesters. Creating templates would help oversee any problems that may arise ie: student's registration. It may also help the units map out new program proposals. Currently there are 12 term codes in banner, five for the Stockton campus, three for the PHS school, 3 for the law school and one for the dental school. Their findings were to not reduce or compact our current term codes.
Last month during Academic Council's meeting the calendar was not approved. The committee was thanked for all their hard work, and for their work ahead in adjusting the calendar for Fall2010. The committee decided to include the following, "Academic Affairs is approving with the expectation that the Fall 2010 calendar will be ready for adoption in May 2009, for implementation Fall 2010.", to the Academic Calendar. The Calendar will be forwarded to Academic Council next week.
R. Khoie moved, C. Wilson seconded to approve the current Academic Calendar; 7 approved, 1 abstention.
