Minutes for October 7, 2010 were approved.
Lisa submitted a proposal to create a College of EMS curriculum committee. She had reviewed BILSA’s and LA&E’s Bylaws and came up with a rough draft. Following a lengthy discussion on the pros and cons, it was decided at this time to leave things as they are and have curriculum items run through the Executive Council. Lisa encouraged everyone to take the curriculum committee idea to their department and discuss. We will discuss this at another meeting. Following the curriculum committee discussion, it was moved by Philip Parker that all UUCC documents along
with a summary sheet needed to be submitted seven days prior to Executive Council Meetings. Mesut seconded the motion. All approved.
Lisa presented copies of the co-op and internship descriptions. She would like to have all the co-op and internship descriptions to be consistent in the catalog. Also brought to the table was to have one catalog number for co-op and one number for internship, and only register for co-op in the fall or spring semester for 4 credits. Students would be able to repeat the number. This will eliminate the confusion with tuition and summer credits. The Dean’s Office will do all the paperwork that would be required for UUCC, and we will submit the items as a batch. Following a discussion Phil Sealy made a motion to change the credits per semester to 4 and students would register for a 3000 level course. Osama seconded it. All were in favor. The changes will become effective Fall 2011. Lisa and Jean will send out descriptions for approval. Lisa also said that we need to redo our evaluation forms and asked for assistance.
Lisa said BILSA and LA&E have a budget committee. This might be something we want to form. She will check with the other Colleges and bring more information.
Meeting Adjourned at 9:00 a.m.
