University Curriculum Committee Minutes



In attendance:  Kay Anderson, Caralyn Zehnder, Steve Elliott-Gower, Alex Blazer, Cara Meade, Ken Farr, Ryan Brown, Stephanie McClure


Minutes from 10/20 and 10/27 approved with no revisions.


Ken has turned over all signature forms for courses that we have officially approved to the Provost.


We again clarified issues coming from the campus regarding Area B. Ken will send a communication from UCC to the campus community providing additional information the process for submitting a course to Area B and the approval process.  Included in this communication will be a call to the campus community explaining what we need for sections for B1.


Timeline issues discussed.   We will accept courses on a rolling basis.  Faculty are encouraged to continually submit proposals.  We critically need B1 courses proposed. Please submit Area B courses ASAP.  UCC’s last meeting is December 1 so all course proposals for Area B should be to the committee by November 29 for approval for Fall 2011. 


There is a need for a repository for course proposals and approvals. Kay has asked Dr. Jordan about this and it will be developed soon.



Discussion of courses proposed this week and tabled from last week:


THEA1100 – Committee voted to approve for A1.


SOCI 1160 – After discussion, committee decided to approve for B1. Minor changes suggested by this committee will be made and the proposal will be modified accordingly.


IDST 2310 – Already in core (C2), now they are requesting approval for Global overlay.  Committee voted to approve for Global overlay.


IDST 2315 – Already in core (C2), now they are requesting approval for US overlay.  Committee voted to approve for US overlay.


Meeting, next Wednesday, 12:30.


Meeting adjourned.
