      A motion was made and seconded to approve the following course:

 

      AGE 4394            Water Supply and Sanitation in Developing Countries

 

      A concern had been raised about cancelling meetings of CUS and the im-

      pact upon the course/program approval process.  The decision was made

      to hold at least one meeting per month regardless of the sparsity of

      the agenda.

      Following a statement of support for CUS Resolution 1989-90 A from both

      made and seconded to approve the resolution.  The policy will be imple-

      mented in the Fall of 1990.

 

  6.  CORE CURRICULUM - E. F. Carlisle

 

      Dr. Carlisle distributed a memo to CUS indicating his desire to approve

      "The University Forum on Liberal Education" -- a special committee to

      review and revise the Core Curriculum.  The specific charge to the Fo-

      rum will be discussed at the January 22, 1990 meeting of CUS.

 

  7.  OTHER BUSINESS

 

      Dr. Brown raised the issue regarding the use of telephone registration.
