5.  Information Items:

A proposal from the Math Department to change the title and course description for MATH 141 from  Intermediate Algebra to Fundamentals of College Algebra.  The current course is a proficiency course taken by approximately two-thirds of all UW-W students.

 200-level courses that would parallel with the 490+ courses currently available in every department.

 This conversation emerged from needs identified in COBE in the past year.  Last year, the Management Department proposed and got approval to offer MANGEMNT 498E and MANGEMNT 293E to allow credit for significant work in the area of entrepreneurship at the lower level.  They are also in the process of proposing BEINDP 296 to accommodate offering a special studies course that will be available to all students (i.e., no requirement for admission to upper division business courses as occurs for BEINDP 496).  This precipitated a need for a discussion at the College Curriculum Committee level. Do we see this as beneficial for all departments on campus to establish 290+ courses that correlate to the 490+ courses?  These might be used for credits for undergraduate research and other credit-worthy endeavors at the freshman and sophomore level.  Another situation in which this topic has surfaced recently is related to the possibility of developing scholarships that include guaranteed internships at the lower levels.
