Preparations for summer 2017 begin with student input

In 2016, Summer Term undergraduate enrollment increased 10 percent from 2015 to more than 6,800. That growth is the result of many changes that grew out of student input. For example, students expressed interest in fulfilling graduation requirements over the summer, so UW’s academic departments offered more high-demand courses that students need.

Planning is underway for the 2017 Summer Term, and  a new student advisory committee is  providing valuable input.  The group met for the first time today with Dean and Vice Provost Jeff Russell.  They discussed ways to gather  ideas and suggestions from fellow students, in ways that will  help the University tailor summer term  to their changing needs.
