NOTES: Endorsed by BUCC February 7, 2007. Presented to University Forum February 28, 2007.

In order to facilitate campus communication and provide a time period where various groups can meet without class interference, an open meeting time is being provided. Individuals and campus organizations may determine whether they wish to utilize the open meeting time.

The period of 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Friday, during fall and spring semesters, is designated as an open meeting time. Credit-bearing classes will not normally be offered during the open meeting time. Department Chairs may seek approval for permanent or temporary exceptions to this policy from the Dean of their college, with final approval by the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. Exceptions may include but are not limited to labs, studios, clinicals, and rehearsals.
