Feedback on sixth residential college sought
Posted February 8, 2001; 03:12 p.m.
The committee charged with making recommendations on the composition and program for a sixth residential college is seeking feedback on its interim report.
The report concludes that the addition of 500 undergraduates to the student body, as approved last April by University trustees, provides "an excellent opportunity to offer a new residential college option for third- and fourth-year students."
It proposes four models for including juniors and seniors in the new college. The committee plans to schedule meetings with members of the University community and to seek feedback from individuals before preparing a final report later this term.
The models the committee proposes are:
- Six colleges composed primarily of first- and second-year undergraduates with 250 additional third- and fourth-year students distributed evenly throughout them.
- Five colleges composed primarily of first-and second-year undergraduates, plus one new college that includes third- and fourth-year undergraduates.
- Four colleges composed primarily of first- and second-year undergraduates, plus two colleges that include significant numbers of third- and fourth-year undergraduates.
- Three colleges composed primarily of first- and second-year undergraduates, plus three colleges that include significant numbers of third- and fourth-year undergraduates.
