Faculty Policy on Classes Held on Martin Luther King, Jr., Day:
1. Class meetings on Martin Luther King Jr. Day are to be set aside
for the discussion of King, his legacy, the Civil Rights movement
or issues of diversity generally as they affect the subject matter
of the course in question.
2. A university convocation will be held on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which all faculty who are able will attend, and which all students will be encouraged to attend. The daily schedule will be adjusted to accommodate as wide an attendance as possible at this convocation.
3. Labs, studios, stage shop and practices that do not conflict with the convocation may be held for regularly scheduled work and are not affected by this observance.
4. Faculty have the option of canceling class on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but if they do so, they should encourage students to attend other programming in observance of the focus of the day.
