  Auto forwarded by a Rule

  Last February, the Provost appointed and charged the Distance Education Task Force with
  development of the University's Distance Education Plan.  All SSHE universities have been requested
  by the Office of the Chancellor to develop distance education plans, and guidelines for development of
  these plans were provided by the Office of the Chancellor.  The original membership of the WCU
  Distance Education Task Force included Gary Knock, Chair; Thomas Egan; Sharon Ennis; Thomas
  Gill; Sandra Kerr; Michael Pearson; Daniel Pauletti; Joseph Stigora; Emlyn Jones; Joel Ressner; and
  David Timmann.  The task force has worked throughout the past spring semester and summer in the
  development of an institutional plan for distance education.

          A copy of the Distance Education Plan is attached for review.  Open hearings on the plan are
  scheduled for October 12th from 3 to 4:30 p. m. in 252 Sykes and October 15th from 10 to 11:30 a. m.
  in 209 Sykes.  Members of the faculty and staff who have comments or questions about the proposed
  plan are invited to attend one of the hearings.  Members of the Distance Education Task Force will be
  in attendance at the hearings.  Comments received will be reviewed by the task force for inclusion in
  the Distance Education Plan.  The plan will be presented to the Provost on or before October 25th.
