R1: 2000/2001: Resolution on Honors Convocation



Resolution on Honors Convocation

Whereas: The annual Honors Convocation serves as a singular occasion for the announcement and celebration of the University’s highest honors to students and faculty; and

Whereas: The Honors Convocation will not be held in October 2000; and

Whereas: The date of the Honors Convocation will henceforth be in May, two days before Commencement exercises; and

Whereas: The recognition of students and faculty to be honored in 2000 will be delayed seven months; and

Whereas: The new schedule would require the ceremony, this one time, to honor those selected in 2000 and in 2001, or twice the usual number of recipients of awards; and

Whereas: Such a program would be unsuitably lengthy, and would dilute the special recognition of those students and faculty honored; and

Whereas: The Faculty Senate wishes to promote the most effective and timely tribute to those students and faculty receiving special recognition; therefore be it

Resolved: That the Faculty Senate recommends the scheduling of a one-time Fall Honors Convocation, to be held December 18, 2000, or in close proximity to Fall Commencement exercises to honor those who would have been honored in October 2000.
