  • Professor MacDonald, Chair of the General Education Committee reported on the review of follow-up and appeal information. The detailed consent agenda is appended below.

    Several additional symbolic systems sequences were reviewed and approved. The subcommittee consulted with Mathematics and agreed to require the second course as the required sequence with the first course as an implied pre-requisite. A communication clarifying this change should be sent to departments that submitted a a two course sequence for approval. Several programs that currently require symbolic systems sequences did not provide requests. A follow-up communication has been sent to these departments.

    ASCRC reviewed JOUR 100 and approved it for Historical and Cultural Studies. The instructor submitted a revised form prior to the deadline, but the subcommittee did not review it. The committee approved a prerequisite exception - admission to Teacher Education program for the Ethics and Human Values Course, C&I 407. There were four courses that did not supply follow-up information for the Ethics designation. These will not be approved this year [SW410 will be submitting information shortly for consideration- the program has been preparing for accreditation and received the electronic request late].
    The prerequisite requirements for several Literary and Artistic courses in English were also discussed and granted exceptions - consent of instructor. ENLT 227 is still pending review by the subcommittee.

    Professor MacDonald and Eglin volunteered to serve on the joint workgroup charged with working through new general education implementation issues.
  • ASCRC discussed the draft Dormant Course Review policy drafted by Registrar Micus. Professor Unger will make revisions for the committee to consider next week.

Good and Welfare

  • Chair Weix attended the General Education Council meeting last week. The Council is a Board of Regents Committee charged with review of the MUS Core and approving the general education courses that satisfy the core from each campus. Sue Samson will be UM's representative on the committee. There will be a state-wide transferability conference. It is important to keep the channels of communication open between the Council's efforts and the curriculum committee.
  • The committee should think about the meeting schedule for the spring and the most effective way to reinvigorate the committee and conduct outreach.
  • Chair Weix recommends that the committee meet with the Registrar's Office personnel to discuss their functions as they relate to curriculum issues. It was suggested to have a morning meeting from 8-9 to accommodate office hours.
  • ASCRC should have a representative on the search committee for a new registrar.

The meeting was adjourned at 3:10 p.m.
