Report to Faculty Senate, Meeting of March 5,
Since its February 5 report to the Faculty Senate, the Curriculum Committee
met on February 19. At that meeting the committee acted on the following:
Course Modification and Inventory Requests: Reviewed 37 Course
Inventory and Modification Requests: CECS (9), CEHS (24), COBA (1), and
COLA (3),?? approved 36 (10 subject to minor revisions) and returned
1 requesting additional clarification and revision.
Process, Procedures, and Guidelines for New Undergraduate Programs
The committee continued its review of the Associate Provost's request
for integrating the Ohio Board of Regents' procedures for new degree programs
into the WSU guidelines. Additional questions were raised regarding
the extent to which the OBR materials submitted to the committee were outdated.
Based on recent work in putting together new program proposals it was noted
that the OBR may no longer require all or part of the detailed financial
statements. Also, in order to proceed, the committee needs additional
information on past practices of submitting to OBR the "Preliminary Prospectus"
and the "Formal Application" and the extent to which the "Preliminary"
has differed from the "Formal." The committee further discussed the
possible issues related to the submission of new degree and program proposals
to OBR prior to their review and approval by faculty governance.
It was decided to attempt to gather the necessary information from the
Provost's Office and work toward drafting a document for the committee
to review at its next meeting.
Scheduled Meeting: The committee scheduled its next meeting for
March 12 at 2:00.
