Glenn Hayes moved, and Tom Colwin seconded, to approve the February 23, 2001 minutes. The motion carried.
Dick Telfer clarified the role of the UCC chair. The committee's rules do not specify whether the chair can vote. According to Robert's Rules of Order the chair may vote; however, using past practices, it is Dick's understanding that the chair of the UCC committee has not voted. Dick also explained that the UCC has allowed voting members to send substitutes for meetings that they will miss. He then stated that he would address the issues of consultation and reconsideration later in the meeting.
The Educational Foundations Department's proposal for a change in number from 439/489-210 to 429-210 Observation & Participation was received and recorded on a Alvaro Taveira/Sally Vogl-Bauer motion. Glenn Hayes then moved approval of the new Urban Education Module. Marilyn Lavin seconded the motion, and the motion carried.
Dick Telfer spoke to the committee regarding the Mathematical and Computer Sciences Department's current agenda items and suggested that the proposals should be grouped to reflect their interdependency. He also addressed options regarding the proposals that were defeated at the last meeting. Dr. Phanord then stated that the revised collaborative Website Development and Administration Minor and Website Development and Administration Certificate on the approved agenda were not endorsed by the Mathematical and Computer Sciences Department and asked that they be withdrawn. Tom Colwin then moved to reconsider the motion to approve the new courses 765-281 HTML and Web Page Development and 765-282 Media on the Web and the submajors Website Development and Administration Minor and Website Development and Administration Certificate. This motion was defeated at the February 23, 2001 meeting. Glenn Hayes seconded the motion to reconsider, which passed. Marilyn Lavin moved to amend the motion by removing the course 765-281 as an option in category 4 of the minor and in category 2 of the certificate, removing the course 765-282 as an elective in both programs, removing these two new courses from the motion, and adding a provision that the programs be reviewed by the UCC in 18-24 months to ensure that courses necessary to support these programs have been offered on a regular basis. Tom Colwin seconded the motion to amend, which passed. The main motion as amended carried. Dr. Phanord then withdrew the proposals for the Web Site Programming and Administration Minor and Certificate as well as the proposals for changes in requisites for 765-381 and 765-382 which were no longer necessary. Phil Johns moved to receive and record the changes in requisites for the remaining proposals 765-171 Introduction to Programming and 765-172 Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming in Java. Tom Colwin seconded the motion, and the motion carried.
