Proposal to Create a Separate Calendar for the McCombs School of Business (D 7791-7806).
Professor Jon Olson (petroleum and geosystems engineering and University Academic Calendar Committee chair) summarized the proposal, which would modify the guidelines to the academic calendar. He said the changes would allow the McCombs School of Business to follow the precedent already established by the School of Law. He also said the UT registrar reported that he “foresaw no prohibitive costs or logistical obstacles.” Therefore, on behalf of the committee, Professor Olson moved that the proposal be approved.
Chair Staiger asked for and received a second to the motion and asked if there was any discussion. There being none, the vote was called, and the motion passed unanimously by voice vote.
