  1. Minutes of March 4, 2002 were unanimously approved with minor revisions. < < style="margin-left:.5in;mso-list:l2 level1 lfo1; Discussion from Hong Rost report on Admission Freeze at the UW System which was later lifted.  The report by UW System was not entirely accurate as UW-Madison, UW-Eau Claire, and UW-La Crosse all were not lifted out of freeze because each had previously met enrollment targets.  There is concern over the International Admission, whose deadline is April 15, as we are unable to accept ANY students.  This impacts both incoming and outgoing study abroad students [UW-L has 19 reciprocal agreements].  For Fall 2002 this freeze impacts 60 outgoing and 40 incoming students.

    4.  Next, announcement regarding Saturday’s International Student banquet at 6 p.m.;  any group order of ten or more receives one free ticket. Banquet is always a sell-out. 

    5.  Review policy was discussed. Rost reported that IEO has some documents related     to faculty led study abroad. These could be used in drafting the review policy.

    6.      The meeting adjourned at 4:28 p.m.

     Respectfully submitted,
     Drew Stapleton
