From the Minutes of April 23, 2014
The Council passed a motion to approve the establishment of a Science Education Committee as a standing committee of the A&S Council with regular reports to the council (29, 0, 0).
From the Minutes of December 4, 2013
Interdisciplinary Program Representation on Arts and Sciences Council
Limiting full participation to only the 6 largest interdisciplinary programs with a major or graduate degree restricts the relevance and representative nature of the A&S Council, as well as raises questions about the appropriateness of the current definition of “largest“ -- those having granted the most degrees, without consideration of other aspects of program life less easily quantified.
The A&S Council therefore passed a motion to amend the Addenda to the Constitution for Operating Purposes as follows:
The voting franchise on the Arts and Sciences Council is extended to include all interdisciplinary programs that offer a major or a graduate degree, effective immediately.
Proposed at the meeting of Deceber 7, 2011
Due to lack of activity, and for recruitment of members to remaining committees, the following standing committees are suspended until moved otherwise by the Council:
- The Faculty Policy and Resources Committee
- The Adult Education Committee
- The Student Policy Committee
The continuing standing committees of the Council are:
- The Core Curriculum Committee (and its subcomiittees)
- The Committee on Majors and Curricula
- The Arts and Sciences Faculty Evaluation Committee
