Please sign up in the Attendance Office. The goal of the meeting is to provide information to students about the proposed change and to gather input.  There will be brief presentations by student members of the IIC and Challenge Success committees. There will also be an extended time for questions and comments by students.  At the meeting, students will be able to provide input that will be brought to the next IIC meeting on February 25th.
