DISCUSSION:

A committee member questioned why a course change was posted on the web when it has not been reviewed by the Curriculum/GenEd Committee. The Curriculum Chair indicated that the corrected signature pages were not updated promptly on the web; this SAC used old forms. The Chair indicated this course evidently slipped through the process. She has notified the SAC that Curriculum/GenEd Committee review is needed for the course.
