Kathy Smith moved to accept the changes as presented. Jennifer Webb seconded the motion. The vote was unanimous to accept the information item.

5) Administrative Reports
Alice Griffin presented the committee with a DRAFT copy of a Course Substitution Form. She emphasized that this is a DRAFT copy only, and should not be shared outside of the committee.

The minor in art is not going to be offered from this point forward.

ARTS 1003 will no longer be offered, effective after Spring 2009. Alice reminded everyone that a course substitution form would need to be completed, if the student did not want to change their catalog year.

Alice also noted that ETEC 2002/2001L will no longer be offered. MGMT 3653 will be offered for non-business minors.

Alice also shared that there will be no paper form of the 2009-2010 catalog. This will be a tough adjustment for some people.

The meeting was adjourned at 2:50 p.m. by Laurie Apple.
