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.
Old Business: None
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
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.
