Dear Pitzer community,

I write to you as Chair of the Faculty Executive Committee (FEC) to provide an update on the status of Pitzer’s grading policy for spring semester 2020.

Pitzer faculty, staff, and students have been working diligently to revise the current policy, and last week the faculty approved the essentials of a revised policy and assigned a task force to clarify its language. The task force has now delivered a draft policy to the Faculty Executive Committee, along with a set of issues for FEC to resolve. With attention to the issues raised in faculty meetings and discussions among 5C students and academic deans, the FEC will finalize specific details. As soon as FEC’s deliberations are complete and the policy is finalized, it will be distributed to the community. FEC understands the time sensitivity around completing work on this revised grading policy. Please know that we are working to finalize the policy as quickly as possible.

Wishing you and yours well during these difficult times.

Paul Faulstich
Professor of Environmental Analysis
