  • Wrapping up –after the fire:
    • Missing Sept. 15 reports:  a PRC response (Com. Studies, Political Science, RS)
    • Proposal for course reduction –a template
    • New schedule for Program Review
      • 1)  Am I missing anything and are there any inconsistencies?
      • 2)  Is this any clearer than the previous schedule? -our last faculty meeting made it very clear to me that the schedule did not make sense to the faculty so this needs to be redrafted to be clearer
      • 3) We need to communicate this to the ENTIRE faculty (if there is to be any ownership).  Where will this happen best?  Should we ask for a bit of time at the next faculty meeting -something like an update on Hamlet.
      • 4) When would GE most helpfully be due to impress WASC?
