UCAPC Subcommittee Reports

Writing Across the Curriculum Committee (WAC) -- Joe Law, Chair, reported that the committee will meet January 27.

Undergraduate Academic Program Review Committee (UAPRC) -- Rudy Fichtenbaum, Chair, no report.

Course Inventory and Modification Requests

Approved Modifications: CS 400, ME 417
Returned Inventories: AFS 402, AFS 403 (the committee noted inconsistencies between the course titles, the catalog descriptions, and the periods of coverage in the course syllabuses and was unclear as to the relationship of the cross listings to REL 330 -- the chair will work with the college to address the issues for resubmission to UCAPC for its February meeting)
Approved Modifications: MUS 151, MUS  152, MUS 153, SOC 442, HST 214*, HST 215*
* The HST changes were coordinated with the affected program in the CEHS and it was noted that the latter will submit a Middle Childhood Education program change during the WTR quarter.
Approved Inventories Subject to Approval by UGEC *: CHM 125, CHM 126, CHM 127
Approved Modifications Subject to Approval by UGEC *: CHM 121, CHM 122, CHM 123
Approved Modifications: ANT 488, P&B 488
* The proposals involve GE substitution courses and a change in the GE Program that needs to be reviewed by UGEC and confirmed with OBR with regard to the GE Transfer Module. Upon notification to UCAPC that approval has been received, the proposals will be forwarded to the Faculty Senate for review and approval (i.e., unlike other course inventory and modification requests, all GE Program proposals must also be routed through the Faculty Senate process).

Program Changes

Approved the following subject to a resubmission to the UCAPC chair to implement the change noted below* (All of which are contained in the link: B.S. Computer Science)
B.S. Computer Science (Bioinformatics Option)
B.S. Computer Science (Business Option)
B.S. Computer Science (General Option)
B.S. Computer Science (Science Option)
* To remove the ABET accreditation deficiency given to the Computer Science programs, the committee requests that the CECS change its proposal for the GE Program Area VI  requirement for Computer Science Majors: [complete] "One additional writing intensive course from Areas II, III, IV" to "Choose any College of Liberal Arts Area VI course". UGEC will also review the change. Upon receipt of  such changes and UGEC approval for all of the above programs, the link noted will be activated and the proposals will be forwarded to the Faculty Senate.
Note: approved by UGEC February 22, 2006 and the link above activated upon that approval and will be submitted to the Faculty Senate for the May 2006 meeting.
