The document "Format of APR Self-Study Report of Minors" was discussed. Item II(g) was added to the format based on the discussion in the previous meeting. The following changes were proposed:

 

Title : Format of APR Self-Study Report of Free-Standing Minors

Notes : Free-Standing Minors are those that are not ordinarily

        reviewed with the major programs of a department.

 

Motion: To approve the document with the proposed changes.  Carried: 7-0-0

 

The committee recommended to bring the following issues to the Faculty Senate:


1. When a new interdepartmental course is proposed, UCC must designate a department or unit to take responsibility of the course in order to write the self-study report for evaluation purposes. For existing courses, UCC can revisit the course description and charge a department or unit in the same way.

2. Faculty senate should send letters to those departments or units whose review is due but did not submit self-study reports.

 

Meeting adjourned at 11:50 AM.
