Result n/a
Remarks FAILED - Memo from VP for Academic Affairs W.A. Baker dated March 12, 1992, states: "I know of no way to implement effectively such a procedure."
Whereas Departmental laboratories are not convienent for all students; and
Whereas We all now live in a "Computer Age" and most of the work required by these labs can be done at home or at work; and
Whereas Some classes that charge for these labratories never require a computer project at all; and
Whereas The money spent on these services can be better utilized by students on things they actually need.
Be It Further Resolved That Lab fees be removed from any course that does not even utilize a laboratory; and
Be It Further Resolved That Among the classes that do require computer projects the students be given a choice to utilize the service and be charged or be allowed to do the work on their own and be exempt from this fee; and
Be It Further Resolved That If after the fact the student decides to utilize the services, he be charged the original fee for the service.
