EARLY ALERT TO ALL FACULTY
The Provost recently announced that UofL will submit a fifth year Interim Report to SACS in March 2013. Because this process will not include a campus visit, everything must be online. This includes all syllabi, which must be made available in PDF format. The current plan is to extract these files from the Blackboard Course management system. More instruction will be forthcoming, and your adherence to this new requirement will be appreciated.
