Winthrop University: Academic Space and Scheduling - Important Dates

Important Dates & Faculty Governance Calendar

A workgroup was formed in February 2009 to consider the best possible ways to make use of the newly created common meeting times, to be implemented in fall 2009. Among the group's recommendations were: To establish a predictable annual pattern of university-level committee meeting dates in order to facilitate curricular review and to create and maintain a comprehensive academic calendar online to show committee meetings and important registration dates and accreditation deadlines in one easy-to-access place.
