  •  I.  Call to order
         In attendance: Baumler, Boser, Deckert, Knight, Lewis, Metz, McCombie, Migyanka, Muchtar,
         Onwueme, Potts, Sechrist, Turner, Rost
         Excused:  Hyde
         Absent: Intemann (Onwueme attended to represent the provost)

    II.   On a Migyanka/Turner motion the revised minutes from the October 26, 2010 meeting were approved.

    III. Co-Chairs Report:

    A. Liberal Studies Committee relationship to UWUCC

    • It seems like an us and them; the Liberal Studies Committee is perceived to be working for
      the provost.
    • We have gotten flack for approvals that they made.
    • One concern lately seems to be that not enough information is available either to UWUCC or the Senate as to what is in the Liberal Studies report.
    • Consensus that the Liberal Studies Committee should operate as a subcommittee of UWUCC.
    • There could be one large election and then the committee would divide at the first meeting
      of the year.
    • The faculty members on the Liberal Studies Committee should be elected rather than appointed.  Suggest that the Liberal Studies Director continue to be appointed.
    • The Liberal Studies Director should be a member of Senate.
    • The level of information provided to UWUCC from the Liberal Studies Committee would need to increase; this could be facilitated by having a couple of LSC members also attend UWUCC.
    • This will probably increase the workload of UWUCC if we start to actually approve LSC actions vs. just receiving the report.
    • Before reporting back to the Rules Committee, Gail will also check with APSCUF Representative Council on Thursday.
