We’d like to thank everyone who attended and participated in the 2019 Pittsburgh Regional Faculty Symposium on March 11. The event attracted over 270 professionals from around the region – and internationally — and gathered together talents and expertise from across the entire spectrum of higher education. Special thanks to Dr. Sarah Rose Cavanagh for offering the keynote address, as well as 13 different Pitt faculty members who where involved in the planning or hosting of a conference session.
For Law Professor David Harris, the Teaching Center’s Media Creation Lab presented a unique opportunity for him — an on-campus location to produce professional recordings of his podcast, "Criminal (In)Justice." Learn more about how Harris utilizes the Media Creation Lab in our latest feature story.
To help decrease stress and facilitate continued academic success, the University has adopted a significant level of flexibility in course grading for the spring 2020 semester. When grades have been posted, all Pitt students enrolled in courses for a letter grade during the 2204 (spring) term may choose to convert the grading of any of their courses from a letter grade basis to a satisfactory (S)/no credit (NC) basis. All courses that are awarded S grades will count toward graduation/degree requirements and satisfy future course prerequisites. Please find more information regarding undergraduate, and graduate grading policies below:
