Academic calendar changes put end to campus 'winter'
July 15, 2002
KALAMAZOO -- The term "winter semester" is about to become history at Western Michigan University.
That's just one of the results of changes to the University's academic calendar that have been agreed upon by the University and WMU's chapter of the AAUP during current contract negotiations. Campus community members may begin using the new calendar immediately, according to Roberta Allen, associate vice president for academic affairs.
The calendar changes must still be approved in an agreement ratification vote by the local AAUP membership. The staff holiday calendar remains unchanged.
