20 COWLEY HALL

Excused: Cloud, Cravins, Dickmeyer, Mortell, Nelson
Sandy called the meeting to order at 12:08 PM.
I. Minutes were approved from the February 26 meeting, 8-0-0.
II. Minutes were approved from the March 5 meeting, with two corrections: Rivera was excused and the date at the top should read March 5 and not February 26. Motion passed, 8-0-0.
III. Sherwin Toribio and Bryan Kopp presented the PT program’s 10-year review. Because there is such an extensive review for the PT’s accreditation, the reviewers agreed that the program is in excellent shape.
Two concerns arose: the PT program did not follow the self-study format approved by Faculty Senate, so Sherwin and Bryan had to do a lot of reading to complete the self-study. The consensus of the APR committee was to not require programs to do extensive revision, but to include a table of contents that would somehow help reviewers locate the requested information for the self-study.
The second concern was that there was no Dean’s letter, which is a requirement of the self-study review. (Sandy did research this issue following the meeting, and the Dean had not written a letter, so one will be created soon).
IV. Upcoming reviews were scheduled for the next meeting:
April 5: Plan to approve Environmental Studies Report
Final Draft of Physical Therapy Report
First Draft of PETE Report
Meeting adjourned at 12:45 PM.
