Senate discusses dining facility
April 18, 1997
The University Senate on Monday heard about plans for a faculty dining facility that will open this fall.
The location of the room, yet to be determined, will enable faculty and staff a place to eat and meet, have meals with visitors or host social events.
It will be another two or three years before a permanent dining facility is built. "This is an intermediate step," said Bruce Stave, a professor of history.
In other business, the Senate changed the number of examination periods per day to accommodate night classes. With the change, five periods will be offered, up from four.
Senators also voted to reject a proposal that would have put students on the Dean's List if they were either in the upper quartile of their respective schools or had earned at least a 3.75 semester grade-point average.
