Service to the University
- Member of ‘Persons with Disabilities” committee for many years. This is an University Presidential Committee.
- Member of the ‘CLAST waiver’ committee for many years.
What is the waiver rule for CLAST?
The State Board of Education and the Florida Statutes permit an institution president, under certain conditions, to grant a waiver from one or more CLAST subtests to students who fail the subtests at least four times. Before such a waiver is approved by the institution president, the waiver must first have been recommended by a majority vote of the institutional committee established to review waiver requests.
