April 26, 2011

  • I. Call to order
    In attendance: Baumler, Deckert, Fair, Greenawalt, Knight, Lewis, McCombie,
    Metz, Migyanka, Muchtar, Onwueme, Pistole, Potts, Rost, Sechrist, Van Dyke

    Excused: Boser, Hyde Absent: Turner, Intemann (Onwueme attended to represent the Provost)

    II. On a Migyanka/McCombie motion the revised minutes from the April 12, 2011 meeting were approved.

    III. Co-Chairs Report: 
        A.  In attendance as guests are three of the newly elected UWUCC members (Justin Fair, Julia
             Greenawalt, and Joan VanDyke); Sechrist also recognized the members who are leaving the
             committee: Sally McCombie, Micki Hyde, Kevin Turner, and Aya Muchtar.

        B.  The Registrar’s Office notified Sechrist that COMM 448 was an active number so it was 
             switched to 446 on the Senate floor; MUSC 407 was switched to 404 for the same
             reason; MUSC 220 was pulled from the agenda because TECC had not approved it (it
             also needs to be renumbered to be MUSC 119). The Registrar’s Office also had a problem
             with EDEX 111 being split into two courses (a revised EDEX 111 and a new EDEX 110);
             Special Education decided to withdraw the EDEX 111 revision proposal and just present
             EDEX 110 as a new course titled Introduction to Special Needs Pre-K to Grade 8.

        C.  10-79c HPED 385 General Medical Conditions in Athletic Training, course revision

    • Should be 0 lab hours.
    • Prerequisite should also be HPED 345 on the current description. Based on the rationale it seems that HPED 365 should be listed as a co-requisite.

    • Suggest that plus be removed from the program title
    • On page 2 3cr is missing from ECED 250 Language Development
    • On page 4 EDEX 111 has now become EDEX 110
