2. Other actions by the Committee
A. The UCC did not approve the expedited proposal to delete MBUS 548 at this time because the correct effective date is not clear. The course will need to be offered until all existing MBA students who are required to have completed the course. John suggests the proposal be removed at the current time and the deletion of the course from the catalog be revisited at a later date.
B. The UCC reviewed rationale submitted for maintaining the catalog listings of RELG 340, PHIL 350, and GREK 306. The committee approves the request to maintain the listings.
C. The UCC discussed the cross-listing of courses and agreed that doing so should be subject to review by the curriculum committee. John Morello agreed to create a form and draft a procedure for submitting potential cross-listings to the committee. The draft form and procedure will be distributed to the UCC for review.
D. The UCC discussed the procedure for listing a program’s potential electives and the fact that different programs follow different procedures. It was stated that a consistent approach would be preferable. However, the current situation is based on how departments have set up their programs.
