Whereas the Rules of the Regents Article 5.E.5.A-B state that “The faculty takes the lead in decisions concerning … educational policy related to teaching, curriculum … and other academic matters”; and

Whereas the Arts & Sciences faculty and students are targeted communities for teaching and enrolling in CU 101 pilot courses, and

Whereas A&S faculty have articulated concern about lack of input on CU 101 course content, development, deployment and approval;

Be it resolved that, consistent with the 15 Mar 07 memo from Mike Grant (AVC for Undergraduate Education), ASC will establish a formal review period for College-wide response to the CU 101 Task Force Phase 1 pilot report and solicitation of “criticisms, comments and recommendations from all interested parties”. The review period shall begin at a regularly scheduled ASC meeting with distribution of the independent external evaluation report and a proposal for subsequent phases including a financial plan. The length of the review period will permit these materials to be discussed among ASC representatives and A&S faculty. The review period will be completed prior to formal consideration of academic credit.

Every five years each certificate program director must report to the Arts & Sciences Curriculum Committee and copy the Dean of the College on the activities of the certificate program. This report should cover a five-year period and include, for each year, the number of students who received the certificate and which courses required for the certificate were offered. The report should also describe reasons for continuing the certificate.

The Curriculum Committee will initiate this Certificate Review Process during the 2007-2008 academic year by soliciting information from each certificate program director. The Assistant Dean for Curricular Affairs will be asked to send notice to certificate program directors in the fall, prior to the certificate review. The Curriculum Committee will report its evaluations to the Dean.

Notice of Motion to be voted on by BFA Thursday 5 April

The BFA Academic Affairs Committee has approved the course CSVC by a vote of 9-0, and forwards to the full BFA Assembly the motion that the course be approved on an ongoing basis.
