'U' Regents approve GRC
proposals by 6-2 margin

C cA elt evice

(Continued from Pafge 1
ments encourage students to.
undertake a course or a term
of independent study.
"I would have preferred a
requirement, in all appropriate
departments, that would have
called for 3-6 hours of indepen-
dent study in the junior year,
and up to 15 hours in the sen-
ior year," said Brown. "Right
now, independent study is the
exception rather than the
rule."
Counseling procedures under
the new CRC plan will not re-
quire students to obtain a coun-
selor's approval for course se-
lection each semester. The on-
ly mandatory meetings be-
tween student and counselor
will take place at freshperson
orientation, when a distribu-
tion plan is chosen, and at the
declaration of a concentration
program which must come be'
fore the end of the second year.
ARGUING that under the
adopted GRC plan not all stu-
dents will take the initiative to
see a counselor, Regent Baker
said, "the exceptional student
is going to get the benefit of
the majority of the counseling."
Although Baker, who
supported the other GRC meas-
ures, justified his no-vote ex-
plaining, "You can't accept on-
ly part of a proposal and you
only have one vote, yes or no."

plaints, Associate Dean of Aca-

Jackson said, "If I didn't be-
lieve that the new system would
allow for personal and sensitive
gounseling for a range of stu-
dents I would have had real
trouble supporting the GRC re-
vision."
J A C K S O N explained that
the time which was formerly
spent on course card signing
can, under the new structure,
be devoted to more significant
exchanges, geared more to-
ward students'needs.
"What the Regents (Baker
and Brown) were probably con-
cerned about - and they had
a legitimate concern -is that
vehicles of regular student-
faculty contact not be under-
mined," Jackson said.
"I have enough confidence in
the student body in that they will
welcome our resources . . . the
intent is to increase and im-
prove student - counselor rela-
tionships," she added.
ADMINISTRATORS
received the news of the pack-
age passage with excitement.
Coordinator of Academic Af-
fairs John Meeker gleefully de-
clared, "We were very glad that
they took it as a whole because
all of the proposals are closely
related, and taking the revi-
sions piecemealy would have
proven detrimental to the pur-
pose of the report"
Plans for implementation of
the revisions will be taken up
immediately by the University
Curriculum Committee, Execu-
tive Committee and Administra-
tive Board in consultation with
Acting Dean Billy Frye.
According to Charles Mor-
ris, all of the revisions to the
Faculty Code are simply await-
ing implementation dates as no

additional drafting is neces-
sary.
"VIRTUALLY allof
the changes could be imple-
mented by September 1st,"
Morris speculated. However,
he cautioned against i m -
mediately putting certain pro-
visions Into effect such as the
new rule limiting the number of
transferable credits to /60 as
opposed to the present 75-hour
maximum.
"We ought to give a year for
the word to get out to all of the
various outside institutions," he
reasoned.
Regarding the impact of grad-
ing revisions upon this year's
Spring and Summer-term stu-
dents, Morris said, "It would
be unwise to change the grad-
ing system in the middle of the
semester," pointing out that
some courses which begin in
May contitue until August.
THE NEW grading system
will include the addition of
pluses and minuses to the cur-
rent grading system, and an
increased flexibility in the pass-
fail option to include up to one
quarter of the student's total
credit hours.
"I would assume that any
student entering the University
prior to the effective date of
the changes may choose to ad-
here to the old requirements,"
Morris said.
"But it is not likely that
anyone will want the more
stringent old policies," he add-
ed. "If you fill the old require-
ments, you fill the new ones."
IN OTHER business yester-
day, the Regents approved sev-
eral key appointments, most
notably Dr. Ara Paul to the
Deanship of the College of
Pharmacy (see related story,
page 3).
The Board also approved
three new departmental chair-
manships: Prof. Roy Rappa-
port, department of anthropol-
ogy; Prof. Allen Shields, mathe-
matics department.
