The Board of Regents (BOR) Proposed Transfer Policy affects all 17 colleges and universities to varying degrees. The BOR Faculty Advisory Committee (FAC) is circulating the proposal and soliciting constructive comments and suggestions. While this is currently a working document, the BOR plans to make a decision on this policy on March 15, and a public hearing will be held on March 9 to hear comments.  The FAC will meet on March 2 to review faculty responses to the proposal.  Therefore, please provide specific feedback by February 24 regarding content and implementation of the proposal, identifying whether it is workable or not, and, if not, what alternatives you suggest.
