All KU Lawrence and Edwards Students

Faculty, staff, and students,

As our semester wraps up, I would like to remind everyone that there is a university policy (copied below) that states no university organization shall schedule events or meetings that require student participation on Stop Day and during finals week. This includes any meeting or event that, while not strictly mandatory, students may feel some obligation or pressure to attend.

Best wishes for our students as they prepare for finals next week and to all a safe and warm winter break.

Carl

1.3.7 No university organization shall schedule events or meetings that require student participation or academic assessment (e.g., honors placement exams) during the final examination period, including Stop Day. Exceptions are allowed for local events or meetings that are scheduled on Saturday and up to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. A committee that must meet during the final examination period to resolve an academic issue may meet only at a time mutually convenient to all members. No other exceptions allowed unless by explicit direction of the Chancellor.
