Millersville University, Faculty Senate
Faculty Senate Meeting
February 3, 2004
Proposed Courses and Programs
Biol 470 - Biology Colloquium, 2 credits - The biology department proposes
offering their colloquia as a "for credit" course in a seminar format. The
colloquia have always been offered and will continue to be open to anyone
who wants to attend. Students who opt to take the colloquium for credit
will read articles by the speaker, who is coming to campus, or papers on
the topic being discussed before the talk. They will meet afterwards to
participate in discussions with the speaker about his/her research. The
course could fulfill a senior level seminar requirement in the biology
department. Desired effective date - Spring 2005. Approved.
Dr. John McLarnon was nominated to fill a seat on General Education Task
Force. Dr. Debra Kepple-Mamros was nominated for an At-Large seat on the
Outcomes Assessment Committee. Dr. Shawn Gallagher was nominated for the
At-Large seat on the Noonan Committee to replace Dr. George Stine. A
Luek/Lynch motion to instruct the Secretary to cast a ballot in favor of
the nominees passed
Senator Schaffer reintroduced back a discussion initiated at an October
meeting. It dealt with protection of students in the event of a strike.
He brought with him a proposal for Senate to consider. After a lengthy
discussion, a Fenwick/Lynch motion for a Senate resolution recommending
that all faculty members at the University will respect the students'
decisions to cross the picket lines or not was passed.
