Academic Affairs

The University has been contacted by the Chester County Historical Society concerning their interest is including some of the pieces from Lincoln's art collection in an exhibit they are planning.  Vice President SubbaRao was instructed to ensure that if the request is granted, a contract indicating the value of the pieces on loan and appropriate insurance coverage is negotiated.  The contract should be reviewed and signed-off by the Fiscal office.

Vice President SubbaRao was asked to look into whether it would be feasible to offer swimming classes and computer classes over the summer months.  It was suggested that summer classes might help to offset expenses for these areas when they are not being utilized to their full capacity by the student body.
