New Programs/Program Changes:
COLA: BA in Women's Studies: The program proposal for a Bachelor of Arts in Women's Studies was reviewed by the committee. Anne Sisson Runyan answered questions about the proposed new program. The committee voted to approve the proposal and to forward it on to Faculty Senate with the possibility that a motion to suspend the rules would allow discussion and action at the final Senate meeting of this academic year.

COLA: BA in Liberal Studies: The program proposal for a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies was reviewed by the committee. Mark Sirkin answered questions about the proposed new program. A question arose as to how widely the proposed new major had been reviewed by the College of Liberal Arts. It had been reviewed and approved by the college curriculum committee and had been reviewed by the department chairs. The committee decided to support this proposed new major if discussion and endorsement by the COLA faculty were obtained prior to putting it on the Senate's agenda. If that does not occur, the committee will again review the proposal at its first fall meeting.

Old Business: None

WAC Report: Joe Law reported that the WAC committee was working on an assessment plan for the WAC program.

There being no further business the meeting was adjourned. The next meeting will be held in fall of 2000.
