The university decided to increase mandatory attendance from 70% to 80%. Student Government was not consulted, and the communication of the decision was distributed poorly by administration.
1. See the raw, but clean results from our opinion poll, asking the student body what they thought.
2. We prepared a cohesive presentation on our findings of this poll.
3. We conducted an analysis of the university's decision, and laid out the only options we see to be valid.
4. The pre-existing issues with excused absences were only given more urgency by this change, and so we prepared a new policy on how excused absences should be managed.
UPDATED NOTE: This is the link to the new Attendance Policy that was released August 26th, 2023. We are still working on getting a document for excused absences confirmed (point #4 above).
