This notice is to inform you of your opportunity to either accept (by taking no action) or to protest (as described below) legislation that was approved by the Faculty Council on May 5, 2014. The legislation is in the form of a “Proposal from the Educational Policy Committee Omit the Twenty-four of the Last Thirty Semester Hours Rule” from the Undergraduate Catalog, 2014-16. The proposal, as approved by the Council, can be found online as (D 11521-11523) on the Faculty Council website under Spotlights and Events <http://www.utexas.edu/faculty/council/>.

The legislation will be formally transmitted to the president for approval as General Faculty legislation unless twenty-five voting members submit written protests to the secretary by May 19, 2014. If sufficient protests are received, the legislation will be presented to the General Faculty for discussion at a specially scheduled meeting at the beginning of the fall term.
