The Academic Planning Committee convened at 8:30 a.m. in room 307 CWH September 30, 2008.  Kastantin, in capacity as convener,  called the meeting to order.  Six of nine committee members were present constituting a quorum.  Two absent members consented to holding the meeting without them.  One absent member was away on family emergency.


Present:  Senger, Glass, Czerwinski, Sudhakaran, Yu, and Kastantin.

Excused:  Poulton, Seebach, and Tiffany. 


Senger was nominated to serve as chair and expressed willingness to do so.  MSP 6/0

Kastantin was nominated to serve as secretary and expressed willingness to do so.  MSP 6/0


Chair Senger asked that committee members respond via email to all members available meeting times for this academic year.  Thursday afternoon and MWF after 2:15 appeared to be most likely times. (Needs committee action via email)


Kastantin  briefly reviewed the process applied to new and modified programs as relates to entering the APC agenda.  There appear to be no new or continuing items in the approval pipeline awaiting APC consideration. 


Kastantin summarized the Faculty Senate charge including APC bylaws.  A single item appears on the charge: 

“Review the current status of on-line education at UWL and recommend ways that the University can plan for the long range future of this area of instruction.”


Chair Senger adjourned the meeting at approximately 9:00 a.m.


Respectfully submitted


Joseph T. Kastantin, Secretary
