Committee motions to extend Thanksgiving Break in future years

The University Education Committee approved a motion to alter the Fall Semester academic calendar by extending what is now Thanksgiving Break and eliminating what is now Fall Break and Fruesday, said Laura Helms, associate dean and director of academic systems for University College.

The motion, which was approved Tuesday, must still be approved by Faculty Council, University Senate and the Ball State Board of Trustees in order to be implemented, Helms said.

If passed, she said Fall Break would be moved to the week of Thanksgiving and the new break would last for one full week.

Helms said finals week would remain the same with no Saturday finals.
