    II.  Minutes from the September 21, 2010 meeting were approved as presented on a Potts/Lewis motion.

    III. Co-Chairs Report
    • The CDFR Curriculum Committee decided to withdraw their proposal for a new course for CDFR 328 Family Issues (10-15r) due to the fact that they did not want to change the name of the course.  It was also reported that the CDFR courses that need TECC approval were not on the TECC agenda yesterday so that means that the CDFR proposals cannot go on to Senate until at least December.
    • Discussion of DVST 095 feedback
    o Disagreed with email from chair of DVST that claimed UWUCC should work with proposers of the course to get it approved
    o Our decision to deny the online version of the course will be added to the Senate agenda as a point of information
    o Gail will correspond with the DVST chair that some members of UWUCC could be open to a revised future proposal but that others on the committee feel it is in the best interest of the students that the course not be offered online ever
