II. Minutes of February 8th, 2008
Michael Shaw made a motion to accept the minutes; Valerie Yancey seconded. The motion carried unanimously.
III. Form 91A – Mathematics (CAS-07-170)
The graduate program wishes to drop MATH 350 as a requirement for admission because it is not essential for the Statistics and Operations Research option. Those students applying for the Mathematics option or the Computational and Applied Mathematics option “will be advised that Math 350 is a prerequisite to a number of the required courses in their program.”
Valerie Yancey made a motion to approve the request; Anthony Denkyirah seconded. The motion carried unanimously.
IV. Form 91A – Psychology SD (SOE-08-399)
The graduate program wishes to replace one of its electives with PSYC 545 (Psycho-educational Assessment and Intervention), which would reduce the electives from two to one. The addition of this course is “prompted by changing needs in the professional practice of school psychology and to bring the program more in line with similar programs in the state.” There are no adverse effects anticipated for faculty or students.
Michael Shaw made a motion to approve the request; Valerie Yancey seconded. The motion carried unanimously.
V. Old Business
Associate Provost for Research and Dean of the Graduate School Stephen Hansen announced that the paperwork for a new program request for the Doctor of Nursing Practice was being completed. The proposal will be reviewed by two outside reviewers and an ad hoc committee before being reviewed at the Programs Committee next academic year.
VI. New Business
There was no new business.
The meeting adjourned at 1:37 PM.
