Minutes for October 21, 2010 were approved with some edits.
Sealy presented a catalog description change for the major. It involved dropping the advanced math elective and replacing it with a new course. Following a lengthy discussion about the math portion and how it could service other programs, Sealy withdrew the proposal. He will talk to the Mathematics Department along with anyone else that is interested. Wilson asked those that were interested to email McDonald.
McDonald presented MATH 3020 which is a change in the prerequisite. McDonald spoke to
the School of Education and received their approval. Zauche moved to approve and Sealy
seconded it. All were in favor.
Zauche went over the different handouts that were presented. Following the Renewable
Energy Council Meeting, the minor would be taken down to a domain which is 15 credits and
students could take 126 credits for a major. There are currently about 65 students in the
minor. Zauche gave a brief explanation of a table showing estimated numbers of faculty and
students through the years. Zauche would like the Executive Council to approve so he could
forward through the different committees. Scanlan moved to forward to system review and Sealy seconded it. All were in favor.
Jadaan passed out the general engineering report. He thanked Mary Kurth for all her work on
this. He gave a brief overview on the enrollment and said he would put the information on the
share drive for everyone to review further. Following a short discussion on the numbers,
Wilson thanked Jadaan and Kurth for their hard work.
Meyers spoke on Parkers’ behalf. He said the environmental degree has had a long list of technical electives and other available technical electives. They have cut the list from 12 courses to eight. This will force higher enrollment in courses. Clifton moved to approve and Sealy seconded it. All were in favor.
Three documents were presented by Evensen; EP 4010, 4210, and 4220. EP would like to
make all three courses require a “C” or better. Sealy moved to approve and Zauche seconded
it. All were in favor.
Meeting Adjourned at 8:55 a.m.
