Cindy Moore made the motion to accept all of these changes. Kathy Smith seconded the motion. Discussion took place about a couple of the courses. HESC 1213 – Cindy Moore was to notify Continuing Ed (Global Campus) about the change in this title, as there is an independent study course for this class through that group. HESC 3213 – The committee requested that Cindy Moore contact the department heads in EDUC and Sociology to be sure that there was no problem with the new name of this course. It was suggested that, as a courtesy, the syllabus for HESC 3213 be included, so that these areas could see how this class is going to be taught. There was discussion about what constitutes a minor change and what constitutes a major change. Jody Davis suggested that as many of these changes be put in as "minor changes" and see if the Registrar would approve them. If they came back to us, we would at least have the first read covered with this meeting and we could have the second read at the next meeting. Major Changes – HESC 425V and HESC 3213 were unanimously approved for a first reading. The program change was also unanimously approved for a first reading.
i) HESC 2433: Minor change: Removing "instructor consent" from pre-requisites will facilitate enrollment
ii) HESC 2453 – Major change, add a course, Analytical Approaches to Research in Human Environmental Sciences I
iii) HESC 2463 – Major change, add a course, Analytical Approaches to Research in Human Environmental Sciences II
Cindy Moore moved to accept the changes presented. Kathy Smith seconded the motion. There was further discussion. Mary Warnock asked if this is for HDFS or does this include HESC? This question will be taken back to the area to poll the members and the answer will be brought back to the next meeting. All favored the motion for a first reading.
iv) Program Change – Glenda Revelle moved to accept this change as presented. Cindy Moore seconded the motion. All favored the motion for a first reading.
The next meeting is scheduled for October 12, from 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
