Dear Dean Anabtawi,

We, PSY 101 students have a problem with the implementation of one of the course requirement, specifically, the research participation requirement. As stated in the syllabus, we need to collect 5 hours of research participation to fulfill the requirement. However, we were not provided with sufficient number of studies to satisfy this requirement.

The lab instructors keep promising to provide more studies, but they fail to do so. Even if we are offered more studies in the future, we will not be able to participate in all of them due to high pressure at the end of semester.

If research participation is such an important component of the curriculum that it has been made a course requirement, psychology lab instructors should have included the schedule of the experiments in the syllabus and abide thereby.

Since this has not been the case, we request to remove the research participation from the grade distribution and provide us with the extra credit for the studies we have completed.
