John Cech, Dean of the COT, noted that this new program will require hiring one .5 FTE faculty member, but the program will also be staffed by community members who are qualified to teach in these areas.

Allen Kent, Microsoft Instructor, stated that these changes are to keep pace with the latest versions from Microsoft.  The course descriptions are kept more general, so they don’t have to be changed every year, but it is important to have the version name in the course title so employers can see it on students’ transcripts.

 

̃ Motion by Connie Landis, seconded by Matt Redinger to accept Items 47 through 47.f for information.

 

̃ Motion carried.

 

Item 48.e  HR 285 Collective Bargaining and Labor Relations.  New course.

IV.       ITEMS – FIRST READING

 

Item 22  Revision of General Education Program – Proposal from the Gen Ed Committee REVISED.

 

It was noted that the Senate has had meetings with both the department chairs and all faculty regarding this proposal.

 

It was noted that the Gen Ed Committee will not be “above” the UCC.  The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee will still evaluate every course submitted for academic merit, but the Gen Ed Committee will decide which courses fit into the Academic Foundations structure.  It was stated that the Academic Senate will still have oversight of all decisions made by the Gen Ed Committee, just like the UCC.

 

It was noted that courses will not be “bumped” out of the program right away; it will be two to three years before a course is removed.  Each Category will have a target of six courses and a maximum of eight or nine.

 

It was cited that some sort of sunset review of courses needs to be in place to keep courses from stagnating and losing quality because they have been in Gen Ed for so long.

 

It was noted that the all or nothing approach is being pushed hard by the Committee.  Promises to fix problems later are not enough.  It was cited that the perception that students don’t understand Gen Ed is wrong—most students do.

 

It was noted the proposal could be passed with exceptions for the issues that are still in debate.

 

It was noted that the capstone will not be implemented until the next undergraduate catalog (2007-2009).  George White, Dean of the College of Education, noted that the matrix and assessment configuration the College of Education began working on in 2001 has become much bigger and more complicated than they expected and they are also just now fully understanding how the whole thing should work.

 

It was stated that the Senate has to either approve this or admit Gen Ed is a lost cause.

 

Mark Hardt, Chair of the Gen Ed Committee, noted that if the proposal is approved, the Committee wants to expand the membership to five members from the Arts and Sciences, one for each category.

 

̃ Motion by Randall Gloege, seconded by Mark Hardt to approve Item 22 (the Gen Ed Proposal) on first reading, with a sunset date of September 23, 2004, for the resolution of course bumping, double counting, and a timeline of course development from the General Education Committee.

 

̃ Motion carried:  8 for, 1 against

 

 

The meeting adjourned at 5:15 p.m.
