Senate to look at rule for earning three degrees

The possibility of earning a third bachelor’s degree will be on the agenda at Monday’s University Senate meeting.

In the spring semester, students who had met the qualifications were allowed to receive a third bachelor’s degree. Since no rules currently exist regarding whether a student can receive more than two bachelor’s degrees, the Senate will discuss the possibility of adding to the University Senate rules.

Also on the agenda for Monday’s meeting will be the approval of the 2008-09 academic calendars and approval of changes to the way graduate faculty members are appointed.

The meeting will be from 3 to 5 p.m. in the auditorium of the W.T. Young Library. Like all University Senate meetings, Monday’s meeting will be open to the public.
