  6.  OTHER BUSINESS

      Dr. Spencer stated that she was growing alarmed at the lack of communi-

      cation between a department that decides to cancel a course and the de-

      partment that requires that course for its majors.  She questioned the

      lack of a formal process to allow proper notification to departments of

      pending cancellations.  Carol Burch-Brown noted that this involves the

      greater issue of departments requiring courses outside of the depart-

      ment of the major.  Dr. Marchman observed that all checksheets must ad-

      here to the 30-day review process which should provide sufficient

      notice to departments.  Dr. White urged the commission not to add fur-

      ther layers of bureaucracy to the process.  Dr. Spencer suggested that

      this issue be added to the April 22, 1991 agenda for further dis-

      cussion.

 

  7.  Meeting adjourned at 3:15 p.m.

 

                                     Respectfully submitted,

 

 

 

 

                                     Wanda Hankins Dean

                                     University Registrar
