Faculty Senate talks admissions committee, process

The Faculty Senate convened for the first time Spring quarter on Thursday, with Nick Bloom, preview chair of Committee on Undergraduate Admission and Financial Aid (C-UAFA), giving a report on C-UAFA’s activities and provided recommendations for improving the undergraduate admission process.

Bloom opened by describing the guiding principles behind undergraduate admissions and topics covered during this past year. Bloom then described his recommendations on how to improve the undergraduate admission process. According to Bloom, both C-UAFA and the actual process could benefit from changes.
