Aug. 26, 2014--I have recently moved and no longer have my old email address. All SACS sent prior to Aug. 26 will need to be resubmitted. I'm terribly sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, and I have taken steps to prevent this from happening in the future. I will be catching up on regular quick edits as time permits. Thanks.
