Student feedback sought on possible fall Reading Break

Date Posted: March 6, 2017

In recent years there has been a large push from post-secondary students to implement a Fall Reading Break into their school’s curriculums. An increasing number of Colleges and Universities in Canada are beginning to explore this for their students, and a few institutions in Alberta (including the U of A) have implemented a version of reading break during their Fall Semesters.

Senior administration at Red Deer College has asked the Students’ Association to gather student feedback regarding RDC’s potential inclusion of a Fall Reading Break in future academic schedules.

Your Students’ Association will be including a plebiscite question regarding this topic on the 2017 Spring Executive Elections ballot.
Students shall be asked to provide a Yes/No/Undecided answer in response to the following statement:
I am in favour of a Fall Reading Break at Red Deer College.

Voting for the question, as well as the 2017-2018 Students’ Association Executive Council, takes place online between 9 a.m. Tuesday, March 14 and 3 p.m. Thursday, March 16.

If you have any questions or require more information on the plebiscite please contact the Students’ Association office at 403-342-3200 or in room 2010 (second floor by the Train Station).
