The Scholastic Review Committee

The following information is taken from Motion US00/01-6 which revises the charges to the standing University Committees.
SCHOLASTIC REVIEW COMMITTEE

CHARGE & RESPONSIBILITIES:

The Scholastic Review Committee is responsible for administering, within the framework of faculty legislation, the undergraduate academic standards of the University as they pertain to the level of academic performance and progress toward a degree.The SRC reviews the records of undergraduate students doing unsatisfactory work, places such students on probation and sets individual goals for improvement, disqualifies students from attending the University for continued unsatisfactory scholarship, and passes on petitions for reinstatement. These responsibilities are carried out in two ways: 1) End of Term Review -- in which the committee reviews the academic records of undergraduate students who have been disqualified based on academic performance, and 2) Petition Review -- in which the committee acts upon petitions submitted by students for reinstatement, cancellation of academic probation or disqualification, retroactive withdrawal, retroactive change in grading option, or contested grade. Graduate students and law school students are excluded from committee action or review for academic warning, academic probation, and academic disqualification.The Scholastic Review Committee differs from the Academic Requirements Committee in that the SRC normally looks only at changes in the student record once the academic term in question is completed.

MEMBERSHIP:

Membership of the Scholastic Review Committee is not fixed except for the 4 student members. Membership traditionally includes 7-9 teaching faculty, 4 students, and the following ex officio members: University Registrar, a representative from Academic Learning Services, the Multicultural Affairs Director or designee, 2 representatives from Academic Advising, the Director of Support Services for Student Athletes or designee.

REPORTING:

The Scholastic Review Committee shall report to the University Senate. At a minimum this report shall be in the form of an annual written report submitted by the Committee Chair to the Secretary of the University Senate no later than the final University Senate meeting in May. The committee shall also make additional written or oral reports to the Senate as necessary.

See also US01/02-4 which is a process for filling vacancies on elected committees:

7.1 Since 1991-92, all non-elected committees established by faculty legislation are appointed by the Committee on Committees, a committee appointed by the University Senate. The Secretary of the Faculty shall coordinate the elections of faculty to elective committees. The secretary shall arrange for the filling of vacancies on elected committees and councils by notifying the next eligible candidate, determined in descending order of the number of votes received in the most recent election for the relevant committee or council. If no eligible candidate is available to fill the vacancy, the Senate Executive Committee, with advice and recommendations from the Committee on Committees, shall appoint an eligible faculty member to fill the vacancy until the next regular election cycle. Filling a vacancy shall not preclude the appointee from standing for election to the same committee or council during the next election cycle if eligible.
