Courses not offered

In March, we will be sending departments lists of Graduate courses not offered in 5 years and undergraduate courses not offered in 3 years.  I will ask departments to let us know whether or not these courses should continue to be listed in the catalogs.


The 2007-2008 undergraduate and graduate catalogs will be published, online, in May.  The current catalogs will be archived, and will continue to be available online at the same web site.

SIS Security

The SIS Security Committee will be conducting the semi-annual security audit in March. Reports will be sent to all areas that have personnel with access to Internet Native Banner (not self-serve SIS through GoWMU). You will be asked to review the reports for accuracy, making changes that are necessary. Each report must be signed by the director/chair/VP/dean as appropriate.  

Reports will be distributed on March 12. The reviewed and signed reports should be returned to Kathy Rix no later than end of day on Friday, March 30, 2007.  

The audit process will be carried out each March and October to ensure that our records are as secure as we can make them. If you have any questions, don-t hesitate to contact Kathy Rix (7-4969, kathy.rix@wmich.edu).
