Expansion of Spring/Summer Instruction

Update as of Fall 2010

Charge

The ESSI task force was charged with identifying two or three options for increasing the intensity of Spring-Summer instruction and developing comprehensive plans for how U-M might implement each option. The task force was asked to limit its scope to instruction in credit-bearing courses.

Status of Recommendation

  • This task force’s report is still being finalized. The task force expects to make its recommendations public soon.

Next Steps

There are many benefits to spring and summer education, but the economic model is complicated and requires further study. Further analysis of these issues will be undertaken both by the Provost’s office and by the College of Literature, Science and the Arts.
