  • Curricular Proposals (course and program changes, academic unit or admission changes)
  • Student Enrollment (term and registration dates, add/drop dates, grading and finals dates, commencement)
  • Course and Section Inventory (submission of courses to be taught, room scheduling dates)
  • Academic Centers for Engagement and Support (ACES) Events (TLPDC, Ethics Center, Communication Training Center, Center for Global Communication, Center for Transformative Undergraduate Experiences)
