|TO:||Professor Donald Eidam
Faculty Senate Chairperson
|FROM:||James A. Stager
Acting Provost and Vice President
for Academic Affairs
|DATE:||December 19, 1997|
|SUBJECT:||APPROVAL OF FACULTY SENATE CURRICULAR RECOMMENDATIONS|
COMMENT: Based on consultation between Dr. Berhow and the Educational Foundations Department, the words "Topics in" was deleted from the course title because it might be confusing to students. Traditionally topics courses have variable titles and can be repeated for credit. EDFN will address the same topics every semester and may be taken only once.
COMMENT: The Acting Provost will remind deans to notify department chairs of the procedure for requesting a minimum grade of B rather than B- in Departmental Honors, similar to our simplified procedure for requiring a C rather than a C- in other departmental policies.
COMMENT: The last sentence in the Governance manual text in Attachment #4, p. 4320 of the Faculty Senate minutes regarding "Unresolved questions" should be deleted to comply with the intent of the amendment.
