Chair Weix inquired as to whether the subcommittee should more appropriately report to the General Education Subcommittee. The charge of the subcommittee was established by ASCRC after the Provost's Writing Committee was abandoned. At some point the senate bylaws should be amended to give the standing subcommittee more permanence. The subcommittee is meeting monthly the second Monday of the month at 3:10 p.m.
Special Topics Courses
After the department offers a course three times, the Registrar will send a notice and require the curriculum change forms or require a letter indicating why an exception should be made to offer it a fourth time. The letter would be received during the third offering and the Registrar will not accept the course if it comes in again.
The language needs to be consistent. After discussion it was decided to table the issue to allow Professor Thompson to work on revised language.
