Course Inventory and Modification Requests
Approved Inventories: IB 482, IB 483
Both courses are proposed in a Title VI-A, U.S. Department of Education,
funded grant. While the committee did not have the specifics of the grant,
members questioned why the IB 482 was restricted to "French speaking business
majors and minors only" and IB 483 to "Spanish business majors and minors
only" and whether the COBA would wish to relax that restriction if not imposed
by the funded grant.
Approved Inventories: SOC/ATH 202 (delete), SOC/ATH 203
Approved Modifications: MUS 420, REL 207, REL 300
Approved Modifications: TMG 201, TAD 232, TMK 201, TAC

Credit By Examination
The committee does recommend that the Modern Languages Committee and the
COLA consider expanding the policy so as to not restrict "For each class
in which students achieve at least a C, they would be allowed to buy credit
for one of the courses they have placed out of." That is, the committee
felt that a 103 proficient student should be allowed to buy both 101 and
102 credit (rather than just "one" of the courses), a 201 proficient student
should be allowed to buy the 101, 102, and 103 credit (rather than just "one"
of the courses), etc.
Appointment of Members: The 2003-04 Faculty President, Dr.
Jack Dustin, has charged UCAPC with making appointments to the 2003-04 Student
Petitions Committee. UCAPC reviewed the list of faculty from the individual
colleges that volunteered to serve on the Petitions Committee, but cannot
appoint members until each college appoints or elects members to their college
petitions (or equivalent) committees. Some colleges do not do so until the
Fall Quarter. Because that creates a recurring problem in establishing the
Faculty Senate Petitions Committee, it is hoped that in the future colleges
will move their appointments and elections to the early Spring Quarter.
Fortunately, UCAPC was able to appoint Kt Mechlin, Assistant Professor Of
Physiology & Biophysics, as the 2003-04 Chair of the Student Petitions
Committee. Congratulations to Kt and certainly many thanks to her for agreeing
to undertake this most important task.
The Committee adjourned for the Academic Year 2002-2003
