The resolution, recommended by the Committee on Academic Policy and Evaluation, would also designate June 11 as a university holiday, ensure that the start of the weekend does not coincide with spring final exams and adjust the start dates for the summer semester, spring and the winter.
The resolution will be considered by the full Faculty Senate at their meeting on November 15. The final decision will be made on December 15 during a special session of the Senate.
Tuesday’s unanimous vote was the culmination of more than a year of debate over the recess. The Faculty Senate’s executive committee held a “good and robust discussion” about whether to cancel classes for Indigenous Peoples Day last October, according to meeting minutes. The measure was voted down, according to Joan Song McLaughlin, chair of the Committee on Academic Policy and Assessment.

“Whenever we make any change, there are people for whom it will have a negative effect and for others it will have a positive effect,” McLaughlin said. “Our task is to propose a calendar that works for many people. The main idea of this proposal should be student success and research activities for faculty and PhD.

“The work that has been done is a perfect example of how the Senate committee works. They were presented with some requests and some ideas that needed to be addressed by doing a great job,” said Senate President Frederic Stoss. “This went through the whole process from issues being presented to a committee that did a lot of work — to the point where we voted to support the faculty committee.”
