a) Apparel Studies
1) Program Change

are able to take any course that meets the University
core requirements. This was presented as a 2nd reading. Jennifer Webb moved to accept this proposal as a 2nd reading. Kathy Smith
seconded the motion. All members voted in favor of the motion.
2) Course and Program Change
The APST faculty proposed that HESC 4073 (Internship) be changed to HESC 4072 and
HESC 4071. Kathy Smith explained to the
committee that this was slightly changed from the proposal that was presented to the committee at the May 9 meeting. The changes are in
the numbering of the course and when the courses will actually be offered. HESC 4071 (Pre-Internship) will be offered in the fall only.
HESC 4082 (Internship) will be offered fall, spring and summer, with the majority of the students enrolling in the course for the summer.

and all committee members voted in favor of the motion.

at the May 9 meeting, were presented via email to
the committee. The changes requested by the committee were as follows:

Re-number and re-word footnotes
Susan Takigiku made the motion to accept the changes as a 2nd reading. Laurie Apple seconded the motion. All committee members
voted in favor of the motion.
2) Program Change
As there were no changes requested for the HDFS minor check sheet, which was presented
at the May 9, 2007 meeting, Tim Killian asked
for a motion to accept the check sheet as a 2nd reading. Susan Takigiku made the motion to accept the check sheet as a 2nd reading
and Laurie Apple seconded the motion. The committee voted in favor of the motion.
5) New Business
a) Apparel Studies
1) HESC 1023 – change prerequisites to "APST Students Only". Others would be allowed in course on instructor consent only. Tim Killian asked for clarification as to how many students this change would affect. Kathy Smith responded that this would be around 4 students per semester (about 1/5 of the class, as the class is limited to 20 students). Discussion was then held about whether this was the best way to limit the enrollment in this class. The committee made the recommendation that the proposal wording be changed to "HESC majors only, or consent of instructor". Kathy Smith made the motion to accept this proposal, with changes noted, as a 1st reading. Jennifer Webb seconded the motion. All committee members were in favor of the motion.
2) HESC 1053 – change the description, as this class is currently not taught in a lab contact basis (new description would include, Lab 6 hours). Description also should include "APST Students Only", as there are only 24 seats in the class. This should not be an issue as there is no reason for other majors to take the class. Kathy Smith made the motion to accept this proposal as a 1st reading. Jennifer Webb seconded the motion. All committee members were in favor of the motion.
b) Food, Hospitality and Human Nutrition
1) Program Change (DIET Concentration): Math requirements will be changed from requiring students to complete MATH 1203 or MATH 1213 to allowing students to complete MATH 1203or more advanced courses. Marjorie Fitch-Hilgenberg stated that this was really a clean-up item of business. Alice asked why Trig was still listed, as the words "or higher" would cover this course. The committee decided that the section reading "MATH 1213" would be deleted. Laurie Apple made the motion to accept the proposal, with the change noted, as a 1st reading. The motion was then requested to reflect that this also serve as a 1st & 2nd reading. Susan Takigiku made the motion to accept this as a 1st & 2nd reading. Cat Wallack seconded the motion. All committee members voted in favor of the motions and the proposal was accepted as a 1st and 2nd reading.
2) Program Change (GFNU Concentration): Currently, students may only complete their chemistry requirements by completing CHEM 1103/1101L or CHEM 1123/1123L. It is being proposed that students may also complete their chemistry requirement by completing CHEM 1074/1071L. Also included is the MATH 1213, as in the DIET Concentration above. Tim Killian noted that he wanted to consider these as two changes. Cat Wallack made the motion to accept the MATH 1203 or higher proposal, as a 1st & 2nd reading. Kathy Smith seconded this motion. All committee members voted in favor. The CHEM change was discussed further. Marjorie Fitch-Hilgenberg noted that this change was already in effect on the DIET and HRMN check sheets. Tim Killian stated that he wanted to see the proposed check sheet. Marjorie Fitch-Hilgenberg supplied the group with the check sheets for the DIET and HRMN concentrations, noting that the GFNU would look the same. Marjorie Fitch-Hilgenberg made the motion to accept the CHEM change as presented as a 1st & 2nd reading. Susan Takigiku seconded the motion. There was no further discussion and all committee members favored the motion.
3) DIET and GFNU Minor Change – Add CHEM 3813 as a prerequisite for both HESC 4213 and HESC 4264. Marjorie Fitch-Hilgenberg made the motion to accept these minor changes. Kelly Way seconded the motion. Kathy Smith asked if there would be any difficulty with students getting into CHEM 3813. Marjorie Fitch-Hilgenberg stated that this should not be a problem if the students get in the class when they should. CHEM 3813 is offered fall semester and during the summer. No further discussions were held and all members voted in favor of the change.
c) Human Development, Family Sciences, and Rural Sociology
No New Business
d) Interior Design – Minor
Jennifer Webb supplied the committee members with the Add/Change Form and the Letter of Notification 3. Kelly Way asked how many students this addition would benefit. Jennifer Webb stated that addition would benefit about 2 students per year. Tim Killian stated he felt that this would be considered a 33 hour minor. Laurie Apple stated that her recollection was that Dean Graham stated the UA would not approve a 33 hour minor. Another committee member asked what is the normal range of hours for a minor. Alice Griffin stated that 15-18 hours is the normal range for a minor. After committee discussion, Alice Griffin noted that it would be advisable for Jennifer Webb to set up an individual meeting with Dean Graham. The committee requested that the Letter of Notification 3 be changed to agree with the Add/Change Form. A check sheet was also requested. Cat Wallack moved that the steps above be completed prior to the next committee meeting. Jennifer Webb seconded the motion. All committee members voted in favor of the motion.
HESC 1031 – HESC 1034 is listed as a co-requisite. IDES wants to remove the co-requisite from HESC 1031. The committee responded that the minor change form must be submitted. Marjorie Fitch-Hilgenberg moved to accept this as a 1st reading. Cat Wallack seconded the motion. All committee members favored the motion.
OTHER BUSINESS FROM IDES:
Jennifer Webb also presented the request to expand the art studio portion of the IDES
check sheet. The area would like to include art
history. She noted that the art department has approved this request.
Jennifer Webb presented that the area would also like to expand the WCOB class offerings.
The request would be to include FINN 4413
and FINN 4433. Webb pointed out that by taking FINN 3933, FINN 4413 and FINN 4433 the student would be able to take the real estate
licensing exam. Webb felt that this would be a plus for the IDES students.
Another request from IDES was to add Cultural Anthropology to the Social Science section of the check list.
All of these requests can be submitted on one form.
Marjorie Fitch-Hilgenberg moved that this be accepted as the 1st reading for this
request. Cat Wallack seconded the motion. All
committee members voted in favor of the motion.
e) Public Policy
Tim Killian stated that there would be a new Public Policy Ph.D. course added. He noted that Social Work, Political Science, Sociology, and Education worked to get a special topics course (PUBP 604V) approved. He stated that he felt this addition would not affect our faculty. The forms for this change are actually being submitted by Brinck Kerr in Political Science. Killian recommended that this be passed as a 1st reading. Marjorie Fitch-Hilgenberg made the motion to accept this as a 1st reading. Jennifer Webb seconded the motion. All committee members voted in favor of the motion.
