USU changes summer semester

With enrollment of about 2,100 students during Summer semesters, USU has decided to take action and hopes to double this number in the next five years.Now feeling some pressure from the Legislature, a Summer Enrollment Committee was assembled to identify key issues and barriers preventing full utilization of facilities and resources. Heading this committee is Vice President of Student Services James Morales.According to a presentation given by Morales, the Logan campus has experienced a 45 percent decline in undergraduate students enrolling for summer semesters since 1999. The committee has identified factors contributing to the decline as increased pressure to work, issues with incentives for faculty, the proliferation of online courses, and a lack of clarity about scheduling as well as not meeting students needs.The committee has been at work compiling a report of recommendations and presenting them to various organizations across the campus including ASUSU and university President Stan Albrecht.
