      Dr. Leon Geyer briefly updated the commission on the core curriculum

      up to three members to areas that the committee membership feels neces-

      sary for additional expertise.  Following much discussion on how the

      membership of the committee would be selected as well as the terms of

      office and whether CUS would be given the opportunity to comment on the

      membership, a motion was made to table the amendment until further dis-
