Item # 4- Report of the DL Task Force
Item # 2 -FA 15-31: Resolution on Freshmen Housing Requirement
It was noted that the completion rate from freshmen to sophomore is higher and
the six year graduation rate, both are metrics that are used to rate the
university. Another comment was that there is just one study cited and noted
that using the metrics, the outcomes are improved when the universities admit a
more elite population of students. It was noted that this year UNF is posed to
go below 10,000 FTE. It was noted that a
strategy is in place for transfer students to be admitted. A friendly amendment
was made and accepted to include that any student who applies and has a permanent
residence in Duval, Baker, Clay, St. Johns, and Nassau to opt out of the on
campus housing. Music recruitment is underway and it was noted that this policy
would be helpful for addressing the needs students that are being recruited to
attend UNF and who live in the local area.
Another friendly amendment was made to strike the literature clause. The
language in each clause was clarified to more clearly convey the issue. The
item was approved to be on the agenda with the changes.
Academic Standards Committee – Steven
their last meeting, they asked Meghan Kuehner to review several issues; first
day of attendance proposal was discussed, and the committee will provide a
recommendation for the first day attendance requirements. The sense is that it
makes sense for faculty enter the first day of attendance rather than the last
day to avoid issues with grade input.

unforgiveable F’s as reason for exclusion from Latin Honors.
