[Motion 2012-01-M05] On Academics First (Revised)
The UNCW Faculty Senate endorses the Academics First idea of examining our own policies in the light of dialog and information from other UNC campuses to learn potential best practices and assess how following the policies of other campuses might affect cost, accessibility, and quality of education.
We sustain that individual campuses continue to set their own policies on drops, withdrawals, course repeats, maximum course loads, GPA , probation, and all other such policies related to SAP if necessary, under reasonable limits and criteria set by General Administration.
