Re: Accommodations for Student Participation in Election Activities


Dear Faculty Colleagues,

The Executive Committee of the University Senate recently took up the matter of the importance of ensuring that students have time to participate in the voting process on election day.

The Office of the Provost supports and would like all faculty to be aware of the Senate Executive Committee's recommendation: that instructors accommodate students who miss class for the purpose of participating in election activities on November 3, 2020.

All elections are important; seldom has one been more important than this one.
