University Policy AR 17 – Academic Schedule and Course Timetabling

Hello Colleagues,

As you may be aware, a significant revision to University policy AR 17 – Academic Schedule and Course Timetabling, is currently posted on the University policy blog for comment.

A number of faculty members have contacted the KFA office expressing concerns about this policy, and we thank everyone who has done so.

The closing date for posting comments on the policy blog is November 30, and we want to encourage everyone who is interested in or concerned about this policy (and/or any other policies posted on the blog for comment) to log in and leave comments expressing your thoughts on what it proposes. You are entitled to comment, we uphold and defend your right to do so, and we hope you will take advantage of this right. Please keep in mind that, even if a previous comment has captured your own position, there may be value in echoing or re-affirming it.

In addition, we encourage you to tell us what you think about the policy, by emailing one of the Table Officers, dropping by the KFA office in Surrey Fir 226, or attending an Open Office Hours session at your home campus. We are endeavoring to meet with the policy developers and to discuss faculty concerns with them directly.


In solidarity,

Bob Davis
