The Quarters to Semesters Transition Team is requesting feedback from the university community on a proposed semester calendar before the start of winter quarter Jan. 5.
The team has met weekly since September and expects to complete its work in mapping out timelines and guiding principles related to the conversion by the end of winter quarter. Ohio University is among four universities in the state on a quarter system.
A draft calendar in PDF format is available on the quarters to semesters Web site. (Shaded areas indicate semester class days, and darker areas within the shaded areas indicate holidays. Boxed dates indicate exam weeks.) The draft calendar follows a standard semester calendar, which includes 15 weeks (74 class days) and one week for finals.
Feedback on the proposed calendar can be sent to Associate Provost for Undergraduate Studies David Descutner, co-chair of the transition team, at email@example.com. Views from all segments of the university community -- faculty, staff and students -- are welcome.
