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.
