Statement from UNI President Benjamin Allen regarding the decision of a UNI faculty member not to allow a student to take an exam missed because of National Guard duty-
As university president and a veteran, I strongly disagree with the decision made by the professor in this case.
We have been working with the student involved from the beginning, and continue to work with him to help ensure he won’t be penalized for serving his country.
UNI has a long and proud history of supporting military and veteran students. We currently have more than 250 military and veteran students on campus and we are proud to serve them every day.
The Faculty Senate leadership has agreed to review the policies in question as soon as possible. See Attendance and Make-up Work Policy: http://www.uni.edu/policies/
