35.       Old Business: 

36.       Tabled Items:  Comm416 – Case Studies in Advertising (Tabled March 2006) Committee recommended further modifications to the justification statement.  On October 11, 2006, Kristi Johnson sent the following email concerning Comm416 to Dr Racheotes.  I have reviewed my notes regarding Comm 416 and have found the following.  Initially, the new course form was submitted in the March 2006 meeting with the course as Comm 416 – Case Studies in Advertising (see pg. 42 of the March 2006 agenda).  However, in the paperwork for the modification to the Mass Comm. Degree plan, the course was numbered as 420 (see pg. 38 of the March 2006 agenda).  When I noticed this discrepancy, I contacted Janice Overlock who verified that the course should be numbered as 420.  I advised her to correct the form when she resubmitted the request.  The number of 420 number was also reflected when the program change request was resubmitted in the April 2006 meeting (see pg. 16 of the April 2006 agenda).  The existing degree plan notes the course as Comm 420-Case  Studies in Advertising (pending approval).

            Add New Undergraduate Program – Minor in Computer & Information Sciences (Tabled 12-13-06, Committee recommended that the Academic Dishonesty statement and removing the Prerequisites for CIS 320.) 

            BSC – 472, Tabled 2-14-07, Dr Racheotes suggested to table the item since CHEM 472 identified as a cross listed course is not currently in the inventory motion made by Dr. Haque, seconded by Dr. Garick to table item due to the cross listed course is not in inventory.

37.       Next meeting will be March 21st, 2007, 2:00 – 4:00 PM, Room 375.

            The next meeting has been moved from 3/14 to 3/21, since the 14th follows Spring Break.
