UC ingot   Colleges and universities from throughout the State of Ohio will gather at the University of Cincinnati on Nov. 9, 2011, for a summit that will focus on the state’s conversion to semesters by fall 2012.

By fall 2012, twenty public and private Ohio higher education institutions still on quarters – from Antioch University to Zane State College – will convert to semesters at the request of the Ohio Board of Regents and in accordance with the University System of Ohio’s Strategic Plan for Higher Education.

To assist with the transition and all of its myriad aspects – student advising, registration, curricula conversion, teaching in a new academic calendar, learning assessment, financial aid and more – the University of Cincinnati is hosting a fall 2011 summit in order to explore best practices.

Attending will be representatives from institutions that converted as recently as fall 2011 as well as representatives from institutions that will convert in either summer or fall 2012.

UC faculty and staff involved in conversion committees and subcommittees will be attending the summit; however, the event is also open to those UC faculty and staff who are not formal members of conversion planning committees and subcommittees. Those individuals can register online.
