Dick Telfer called the meeting to order at 2:16 p.m.
George Ferencz moved to approve the agenda. Mark Skidmore seconded the motion which carried.
Tom Colwin moved, and Terry Ostermeier seconded, approval of the April 23, 1999 minutes. The motion carried.
Dick Telfer noted that the new course "New Student Seminar" was not passed by the Faculty Senate and that it was returned to the UCC. In addition, the recommendation that "...the Faculty Senate delegate the approval of curricular matters to the Faculty Senate Chair..." sent forward from the April 9, 1999 UCC Meeting was referred to the Personnel Rules Committee by the Faculty Senate for further recommendation.
The proposal from the Business Education and Office Systems Department to change the requisites for course 437-441 was received and recorded on a Mark Skidmore/Marilyn Lavin motion.
Marilyn Lavin moved, and Scott Bradley seconded, to approve the Geology Program's proposals to add a new course 616-492 Field Studies in Geology and to change the Geology submajor. After some discussion, the course 616-492 was returned to the department on a Marilyn Lavin/Terry Ostermeier motion. Because the course was listed within the change in submajor, the Geology submajor was also returned to the department, but on a George Ferencz/Andrea Nye motion.
Tom Colwin moved, and Greg Green seconded, to approve the Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Coaching Department's new course proposals 448-466 Drugs and Sport (ASEP/NFICEP), 448-467 Citizenship through Sports (ASEP/NFICEP), 448-468 Sport First Aid (ASEP/NFICEP), and 448-469 Coaching Principles(ASEP/NFICEP). The titles reflect the friendly amendment that the ASEP/NFICEP appear parenthetically at the end of the title vs. at the beginning of the title. The motion carried as amended.
Marilyn Lavin moved approval of the Marketing Department's proposal for a change in submajor in the Professional Minor in Business Studies - Marketing Emphasis. Mark Skidmore seconded the motion and the motion carried.
The Mathematics Department's proposal to delete course 760-354 was received and recorded on a Tom Colwin/Greg Green motion.
Greg Green moved to receive and record the special courses that had been approved between April 16, 1999 and April 30, 1999 as listed below:
|436-490/690||Wisconsin Instructional Design System||1993||4/29/99|
The General Education Review Committee Report on World of Ideas was reviewed and the program was approved for another 2 years on an Andrea Nye/George Ferencz motion.
The proposal for the change in major for the BBA in Accounting was then redistributed with changes that were recommended from the April 23, 1999 meeting. Greg Green moved approval of the proposal and David Remmele seconded the motion. The motion carried.
There was some discussion regarding the 497 courses. The Registrar's Office had requested that the number be issued to all departments rather than just the departments that asked to have it. This change would allow the Registrar's Office to better maintain credits being transferred in by students that are studying outside the US. Dick Telfer asked that the committee members take the issue back to the colleges and let him know if there would be any repercussions if the course number were to be implemented campus-wide.
The meeting adjourned at 3:02 p.m. on a Scott Bradley/Mark Skidmore motion.
