No classes have been scheduled for the block of time from 12-2 p.m. each Thursday. This was done to provide an open time that allows the scheduling of a variety of campus meetings, events, or presentations and to encourage greater participation by students, staff, and faculty. The 12-2 p.m. time on Thursdays was chosen because it appeared to have the smallest impact on class schedules.
There are some regular meetings that will have a set time. For example, academic departments will meet on the second and fourth Thursday of each month during this time. The Chancellor’s Office will schedule meetings on the third Thursday of the month. The purpose of this time period is to schedule meetings of campus-wide interest; i.e., open forums, campus assembly. The first and, when it occurs, fifth Thursday will be used for special events or meetings. The Chancellor’s Office will coordinate requests for scheduling those time periods. Those two time periods need not be open to all campus audiences and may be used for staff training, meetings of organizations, or for discussions relating to issues in higher education.
The schedule for the 2013-2014 academic year has been established by a group of faculty, staff, and students, and it can be found here. The schedule for the following year will be developed over the next few months. If someone has an idea for a program or speaker, please contact Chris Winjum at 218-281-8343 or firstname.lastname@example.org with information.
We ask for your support and cooperation in maximizing this time period. The intention is to build a stronger campus community by improving communication, engaging faculty and staff in important issues, providing opportunities for training, and conducting campus business.
