Dear Barbara, Sparlha, and the ICPW Faculty,
As weekend students, we recognize the difficulties associated with scheduling the ICPW program. We are also aware of your willingness to work with previous ICPW cohorts in avoiding scheduling conflicts when they impact a vast majority of students.
In that regard, we wish to express our strongly felt concern about holding the first weekend of Fall 2013 ICPW semester during Labor Day weekend. Considering that many students also work full-time, a vast majority of students use these holiday weekends to visit family, participate in cultural events, deepen their spiritual practice, or some combination thereof.
We would be so grateful if the faculty would consider adjusting the Fall 2013 ICPW schedule in a way that would allow us to spend our holiday weekend with our loved ones and spiritual communities.
Thank you for understanding,
