Academic Affairs Council

October 5, 2010

Present: Fay Maas, Jiyoon Yoon, Georgia Keeney, Lynette Carlson, Bruce Munson (ex officio)

The Committee met to discuss the process for submission of courses for the new Liberal Education program. Bruce initiated discussion by reviewing the overall process and noting timelines for course submissions. All courses will need department head and dean approval. New courses will need to go through the department and Committee following the normal approval process. Courses that involve minor changes to meet Liberal Education criteria can be changed via memo from the department head to the Associate Dean. Courses that involve major changes will need to be reviewed by the Committee.

Bruce will inform department heads about the process and timelines.
