Please Respond to SCAD re Suspensions Document (11 September 2012)

As emailed by Mark Jones to campus lists, 11 September 2012:

Dear Colleagues,

If you believe that Queen’s should follow regular consultative procedures before suspending admissions to academic programs (and this should include all who were concerned about the BFA issue last year):

Please respond to the notice forwarded below.  SCAD has graciously extended the deadline to 28 September.

The issue is complicated (and SCAD’s notice complicates it further by using the wrong title for its document), but QUFA has made it simpler by submitting a comprehensive response with a proposed re-drafting (see here).

Thus, if you agree with QUFA’s response, you need only write to SCAD, c/o Peggy Watkin ( as follows:

Concerning SCAD’s Draft “Recommended Procedures for the Suspension of Admissions to Academic Programs,” I fully support the QUFA response to this document and its attached re-drafting.

Thanks–and please forward this to your students and colleagues–Mark
