  • Historical and Cultural Studies submitted its approved course list for consideration. It has rejected 20 courses that were not introductory and foundation and follow-up is pending for five courses. The detailed list is appended below.
  • The Ethics and Human Values Subcommittee approved 15 courses and is rejecting 13 (see list appended). It will be communicating to the instructors of the rejected courses regarding the reason for the rejection and inviting them to resubmit. The communication will include a list of traditions that may be used with appropriate texts. The subcommittee will also offer a summer workshop for faculty interested in exposure to the traditions to meet the general education guidelines.
  • The Natural Science Subcommittee has minor concerns with several of the forms. However, it has not followed up with the instructors. There were only five forms that had a concern from more than one member of the subcommittee. After discussion, the Committee voted to reject GEOG 426 because it was not introductory and students who take the course would likely have already met the natural science requirement. WBIO 105 was also rejected because the form was poorly completed. The list appended lists the approved courses and those pending follow-up.
  • Literacy and Artistic Studies is still waiting for follow-up on two courses. The others on the appended list were approved.
  • The Indigenous and Global Perspective Subcommittee reported on the pending follow-up.
