Committee of the Whole: Discussion: "Incoming Student Preparation and the Challenge to Parkside."
What are the challenges to instructors when seventy per cent of our students begin in remedial courses? What values and expectations do entering students bring with them? What steps and resources are required in the total institutional context? How can various groups help each other in identifying and meeting the challenges of the needs of entering students? What would the beginnings of an institutional action plan look like?
A motion to form a Committee of the Whole will automatically be on the floor. Should the motion be approved, the Committee of the Whole will be chaired by Dennis Rome, the University Committee Chair. Under UWPF 1.04(3), the Chancellor is the presiding officer for faculty meetings, except in this circumstance.
The Committee of the Whole may report recommendations representing a consensus of those present, as determined by the Chair, or it may rise without report.
