Dick Telfer asked if there was any information to be discussed regarding the Repackaging of Existing General Education Program. It was determined that it is still under review and will be discussed at the next UCC meeting.
Larry Schuetz discussed the possibility of a "dispensation" to offer all 5 credit science labs as 4 credits as a one year test pilot. Paperwork would be submitted in Spring 2000, once the trial of the lab situations have proven that they can be completed in the 4 credit time span. Discussion of the group was mixed. Some felt that because of the magnitude of majors and submajors involved, maybe with a course outline it could be done. Others felt that no such actions should take place without the curricular proposals in place. No actual recommendations were made.
The meeting adjourned at 3:20 p.m. on a George Ferencz/ Marilyn Lavin motion.
