Minutes of the Curriculum and Teaching Committee Meeting, of
Friday, October 5th, 2007

The meeting of Curriculum and Teaching Committee was held in the Postupak Room in the McGowan Building and called to order at 2:05 p.m.

In attendance: Committee Chairman Pavlac (presiding), Chair-Elect Concannon, members; Corgan, Evan, Fetterolf, Hosseini, Lindenmuth, Little, Malesic, and Wallace, VPAA Holodick.

The minutes from September 21st and the 26th were approved as amended.

I: Discussion about the Salmon, Blue and Blue with asterisk cores

II: A motion to support the Blue Core without the asterisks was overruled by the Chair.

III: The committee endorsed a name change of the Salmon and Blue Cores. This was
done to avoid confusion. The Salmon Core would now be referred to as the
Proposed Core Curriculum approved Spring of 2007 and the Blue Core would
now be referred to as the Proposed Core Curriculum of October 5, 2007.

IV: A motion was made and seconded to delete the
asterisks numbering of CORE 150 – 150C etc. and replace these with the
following: Interdisciplinary Thematic Social Science Course focusing on
American Issues and Thematic Social Science Course focusing on Global
Issues and not list any courses.

The motion included that the Proposed Core Curriculum of October 2007, with
the above changes, be sent to the members of the Social Science Division with
the following statement: “After careful thought and deliberation, this is the
modification of the Core endorsed by C&T to address the charge by Faculty
Council. We send this to you for review and comment."

The motion was carried.

V: The next item on the agenda was that of appointing CART Coordinators.

A: A motion was made and seconded that the list that
consisted of only one name seeking the position of CART Coordinator be
forwarded to Dr. Holodick with the communication that the C & T has no
objections to the appointment of these coordinators.

B: Regarding the selection of the other CART Coordinators, where there were
multiple people interested in the position, the committee was in favor of asking Dr. Holodick for confirmation on who would be making the decision on these appointments. There is concern about the selection process.

C: It was agreed that the Chair send out a request from applicants for a brief (no longer than one page) description of 1) qualifications and 2) vision or goals for the CART to be submitted by Friday, October 12.

VI: A motion to adjourn was made and seconded. The motion was passed and the meeting adjourned at 4:38 p.m.

Respectfully Submitted,

Paul Lindenmuth
