Precinct Caucus Night

Consistent with Minnesota State law, at their December 2005 meeting, the Board of Regents approved a resolution authorizing the University of Minnesota to schedule classes and events on caucus night. This resolution also permitted individual accommodation for students who wished to attend their party caucus.

Caucuses are held on the first Tuesday evening of February. All classes and events scheduled for this night will be held as scheduled with the expectation that instructors will make reasonable accommodations for students desiring to attend a caucus.

If a faculty or staff member scheduled to teach on Tuesday night wants to attend their party caucus or if enough of their students indicate that they will be attending caucus so that holding class becomes impractical, instructors may either cancel class or make reasonable alternative arrangements.

Please communicate this notice to all concerned individuals within your college.
