Academic Proposal Cover Sheet Revision

The Senate passed without dissent the revisions made to the Academic Proposal Cover Sheet after a Kevorkian/Wismer motion.

Discussion of the Diversity (D) Requirement - After much discussion of the issue, further consideration will be postponed until the second Senate meeting in September, 2002. A number of individuals who wish to take part in these discussions will be unavailable for the June 11 meeting.

Discussion of Proposal for Institution of an Award Recognizing Teaching Excellence at MU - Further discussion of the proposed Teaching Excellence Award was also postponed until the second Senate meeting in September, 2002.

Academic Policies Proposals - The two Academic Policies proposals (the Incomplete policy {see attachment} and the proposed procedure for approval of Liberal Arts Core courses) will be postponed until the second Senate meeting in September, 2002 so that Chairperson France can be present for the discussion and to allow sufficient time for departmental feedback.

The meeting was adjourned at 5:41 p.m.

Respectfully Submitted,

Paul Studdard
Acting Secretary
