Ex-officio members Present:
The meeting was called to order at 12:10 p.m.
The 9/10/08 minutes were amended and approved.
The new student members were welcomed to the committee and members introduced themselves.
All members of the doctoral IIP committee must hold a doctorate degree - one member must be from a doctoral program. The Dean of the Graduate School or the Dean's designee from a doctoral program will serve as an ex officio (non-voting) member of the committee.
Chair Moisey recalls that at one point the recommendations had more detailed description of the student's committee. He will review his files.
Rationale for program including/excluding courses (if any 300-level courses, why; if 400-level courses, why) - comparison of program to other University programs of similar nature.
A few years ago there was discussion regarding dual listing of courses in a program. Could this be an alternative to UG courses? How do other universities handle the issue?
Camie will ask the Registrar for a count of 300 and 400 level UG courses.
Good and Welfare:
The meeting was adjourned at 1:00 p.m.
