Time Periods for Academic and Event Scheduling

At the beginning of the Fall 2022 semester discussions began on a return to our previous model for course time periods from the pandemic model that was in place to support academic course scheduling and the Javits Lecture Center renovation.

As a result of the decision to return to our previous model many students, faculty and staff voiced expectations for a reimagined  time period schedule. Provost Lejuez tasked the Registrar's Office with setting up an ad-hoc committee to recommend a new direction for the future.  The committee included invited students, faculty and staff with representation from academic/administrative departments, Dean’s Offices, and Student Affairs.
