Other deliberations/actions: Joint subcommittee of GCPRC and Teacher Education Council (TEC) formed to work out differences on proposal to change the M.Ed. Core Curriculum

Review of graduate student admission procedures resulted in motion passed: Departments will determine students admission status and the admission letter, indicating that status, will be sent from the Graduate School office.

A study of grading systems at other graduate schools in MUs comparison group by the ad hoc committee and a general review of the A, B, C, F grading policy for graduate students determined that no compelling reasons to change the grading system exists at this time.

Matters currently in committee:
1. Need for topics numbers at graduate level in departments without them.
2. New course approval for ECON 546 Economics of Health and Health Care
