Procedures for Plan Modification & Amendment
A good plan is a living document that changes with time (hence the 3-ring binder so that we can insert new pages when changes are made). But we don't want to change the course flippantly, so the following procedures are included to ensure that some thought and public notice go into any substantive changes.
There are three types of changes to the plan: amendments, special exceptions, and minor changes. Changes to the plan can be proposed by anyone: a member of the public, students, faculty, or staff. Proposals for changes to the plan must be submitted in writing to the Trails Committee with a copy to the MPC. The proposal must include the reason for the change, what provision of this plan would require modification and in what way, and why the change is in the best interest of the University.
