Leaves of Absence Students who have an overall grade point average of at least 2.00 and who have no outstanding obligations to the College are eligible to take a Leave of Absence from their studies for up to two semesters and retain the right to enroll at the College at the end of the Leave

preserving their original catalog year and

without applying for readmission. If a student wishes to take a Leave during a semester in progress, an application must be filed before the published course withdrawal deadline to receive grades of “W”; if a student applies for a Leave after this deadline, grades of “E” will be recorded in all courses. Application forms for Leave are available on-line at geneseo.edu/enrollment_managment for download. Completed application forms should be submitted in the Office of the Vice President for Enrollment Management, Doty 312. Students who leave campus to study abroad or at another college may have to take a Leave of Absence, depending on the type of program in which they enroll. (See “Studying at Other Colleges.”) Students on Leave of Absence who fail to return or to fulfill their obligations to the College will have their status changed from Leave of Absence to Administrative Withdrawal. (See below.)

If they are readmitted to the college after being placed on Administrative Withdrawal, they return under the catalog of the year of their readmission.

Readmission after Dismissal or Resignation Students who have been academically dismissed or who resign may not apply for readmission until at least two criteria have been met. First, at least one year must have elapsed since the time of academic dismissal. Second, students are expected to complete successfully a minimum of one full-time semester at another accredited college, or a comparable experience (as determined by the Dean of Curriculum and Academic Services). Students are required to submit an application for readmission, transcripts from any colleges attended, and, in addition, should provide a brief written statement detailing the reasons for returning to Geneseo. Readmission to the College does not automatically readmit students to majors or programs which have separate admission standards (the School of Business, the School of Education). Using the procedures described above, an Academic Standards Committee reviews the records of dismissed students and those who resigned in previous semesters and wish to be readmitted to the College. The Committee has the authority to recommend or deny readmission and to specify conditions for readmitted students. Readmitted students should be aware that their previous Geneseo academic record remains as a part of their Geneseo cumulative average and is considered in academic reviews conducted in subsequent semesters. They should also be aware that the Geneseo cumulative average is not altered by grades earned at other institutions.

Readmitted students return under the catalog of the year of their readmission.

Applied Learning Inventory Guidance from SUNY

The excerpt on this page describes the criteria that the SUNY Applied Learning Steering Committee have set for whether a particular teaching/learning activity is to be considered Applied Learning. The following page describes the inventory of such practices that the local Applied Learning Working Group must assemble by Feb 15, 2016.

D. Criteria for Approved Applied Learning Activities

Definition: Applied learning refers to an educational approach whereby students learn by engaging in direct application of skills, theories and models. Students apply knowledge and skills gained from traditional classroom learning to hands-on and/or real word settings, creative projects or independent or directed research, and in turn apply what is gained from the applied experience to academic learning. The applied learning activity can occur outside of the traditional classroom experience and/or be embedded as part of a course. All manner of experiences including high-impact practices and traditional applied learning education can be considered approved applied learning activities if, and only if, they meet the criteria listed. When applied learning is embedded in a course, these criteria refer to the activity rather than the course as a whole. Regardless of the activity, both the experience and the learning are fundamental.

The Activity is Structured, Intentional and Authentic -

All parties must be clear from the outset why this specific experience was chosen as the approach to the learning, and intentional about defining the knowledge that should result from it. The activity needs to be a structured experience with a formal process, which includes a course syllabus or learning contract between parties (students, faculty, and other supervisors as appropriate) and/or defined assessable learning outcomes. Roles and responsibilities must be clearly defined. Faculty and site supervisors (as appropriate) are expected to take the lead in ensuring both the quality of the learning experience and of the work produced. The applied learning activity should have hands-on and/or real world context and should be designed in concert with those who will be affected by or use it, or in response to a real situation.

The Activity Requires Preparation, Orientation and Training -

Participants and mentors must ensure that students enter the experience with sufficient background and foundational education, as well as a plan to support a successful outcome. The training and plan should include learning expectations and be referred to (and potentially updated) on an ongoing basis by all parties.

The Activity Must Include Monitoring and Continuous Improvement -

Applied learning activities are dynamic. Therefore all facilitators in the activity share responsibility for ensuring that the experience, as it is in process, continues to provide a rich learning environment and is meeting learning outcomes. Activities include a defined and flexible method for feedback related to learning outcomes and quality performance for all parties.

The Activity Requires Structured Reflection and Acknowledgment -

There must be a structured opportunity for students to self-assess, analyze, and examine constructs/skills/insights from their experience and to evaluate the outcomes. Reflection should demonstrate the relevance of the experience to student learning, including the student’s articulation of how the experience draws on and improves this learning and meets defined objectives. Post experience learning should include a formal debriefing. All facilitators and students engaged in the experience should be included in the recognition of progress and accomplishment.

The Activity Must be Assessed and Evaluated -

all facilitators. Outcomes and processes should be systematically documented with regard to initial intentions and quality outcomes. Students must receive appropriate and timely feedback from Modified from Eight Principles of Good Practice for All Experiential Learning Activities, National Society of Experiential Education ( http://www.nsee.org/8-principles ).

On May 6 th , 2015, the SUNY Board of Trustees passed a resolution stating that SUNY shall develop a plan to make approved applied learning activities available to SUNY students enrolled in the 2016/17 academic year, and that this plan will include individual campus plans. The resolution follows from language in the 2015-16 Enacted State Budget (in an “Article VII” bill). Based on this language the Applied Learning Steering Committee has broken campus plans into VII parts. This assignment represents Part I of VII of campus applied learning plans and should be submitted as an inventory of approved applied learning activities as they currently exist on your campus. Please make every effort to ensure that the activities listed meet the criteria provided to you in the Applied Learning Guidance Document. In subsequent parts of campus applied learning plans you will be asked to describe how your campus could formalize current activities that do not meet the criteria. Please refer all questions to [email protected]

.

Question 1

(1-2 page narrative) Please describe all campus work on applied learning to date. Describe the overall structure of applied learning on campus including what supports exist to help students identify and complete applied learning activities (offices, databases, instructional support).

Question 2

(please attach an Excel sheet)

Question 3

(provide in a separate tab(s) in your Excel Sheet) Using the criteria for approved applied learning activities provided, list all current approved applied learning activities offered to students. This question is regarding the number of opportunities currently available to students that meet the criteria, NOT the number of students who are currently engaged in approved opportunities. Please list any existing courses, projects and/or programs that currently require approved applied learning experiences. Correspondence: [email protected]

Discussion of issues of interest

L. Bamburoski: Facebook has an informal question and answer forum (a FAQ) that could be and often is wrong.

D. Medeiros: Advocated prioritizing performance practice space, for those unaffiliated with a club/group.

Mental Health Services needs to be a top priority too.

E. Gamello: Food allergies and CAS incompatible. Don’t’ eat prepackaged. Labeling is vague on menus. Don’t eat the cereal because bins for one type of cereal with nuts put in those with others. Compound gluten and nut allergy sufferers must avoid the healthy and the prepackaged and the cereal bins. Peanuts in the stirfry limit who can eat. What type of nuts are not specified (peanuts training.

aren’t tree nuts).

Gender self-identification support: Create a document to help train faculty. Best practices for Safe Zone L. Bamburoski and A. Taber: Student organization expo was too late this year. Any way to force it earlier. May be better to do volunteer first because of times needed to get national dues and conference fees in.

D. Scott: Does the schedule rise to a priority because it may not be changeable?

R. Osborn: When was the event? Was the delay (maybe not delayed) the cause that made it drag it out for Freshmen?

K. West: Director for Student Life responsible for the date. Is there a feedback.

R. Coloccia : It is on the 2 nd all college free period. That might be the reason that it’s when it was.

D. Scott: Maybe we want to invite someone from Student life to come to the SAC meeting.

D. Ross: Agree to put MH at top. What about advisement system? Students are meeting with faculty creating a course schedule, but not planning a career.

Approved Minutes, Faculty Affairs Committee

27 October 2015

Present: R. Gifford (chair), J. Allen, A. Buttice, D. Farthing, C. Kelleher, C. Larkin, C. Merrilees, M. Lee, A. Pellerin, K. Yokoyama Guests: K. Kallio, Interim Assistant Provost Excused: L. Adelson, T. Kenney, T. Hon, E. Kang, Chair, R. Gifford, called this regular meeting to order at 4:00 PM. The minutes from the meeting of 29 September 2015 meeting were approved without objection.

Reports

Chair - Rick Gifford reported that future projects can come from various sources across the campus. He discussed the issue with James McLean, Senate Chair, who indicated that FAC projects should be reported to the Executive Committee of the Senate but do not have to be approved. In addition, Executive Committee need only be notified of issues the Senate Committees want to present to the Full Senate. Again, no approval is necessary.

Unfinished Business

Ken Kallio discussed the proposed evaluation forms for non-tenure track faculty – adjuncts, lecturers and visiting professors. He reviewed the most recent forms which were modified from the Per form. Ken explained that the Provost asked FAC to review the forms last year and to provide any suggestions. They hope to finalize the forms this semester (fall 2015). The Committee set priorities for four projects that were ongoing from last year or referred to the FAC by the Provost and/or Executive Committee: Perf Forms – Anne Pellerin and Rick Gifford will review the forms and present a report for review at the October 27, 2015 FAC meeting. The report will include items identified by the 2014-2015 FAC. If approved, the report will be sent to the Provost’s office. Rick Gifford will provide a final status report to the Executive Committee and close the project. SOFI form improvement recommendations – The Committee tabled the project until spring 2016. Listing of topics for a Geneseo Faculty Handbook – James McLean, Senate Chair, provided links to faculty handbooks at other SUNY schools and requested we develop a listing of potential topics to be included in a digital handbook. Jim Allen, Dori Farthing and Mansokku Lee will review the links and develop a list of potential topics for the handbook. Academic Assessment Committee Results – James Allen, Ashley Buttice, Rick Gifford, Casey Larkin and Christine Merrilees will review the information collected from the survey of the Provost’s office and develop an executive summary of the findings to be shared with the full faculty. The FAC will coordinate with the Provost’s office as the Provost would like to provide a response to the concerns raised in the survey (either as part of or issued separately). A related project is to provide guidance as to what issues both the faculty and administration should consider in future reviews. The Committee tabled this project until spring 2016.

27 October, 2015

Gamello, Tanvir Hayat, Taylor Knowles, Maria Helena Lima, Kate Lomazzo, Kyle James Matthews, Rachel Osborne,

Excused:

Denise Scott Chair called the meeting to order at 4:05 PM.

The first item on the agenda was the consensus that student mental health center/issues need to be addressed by the Committee first. The health center staff are overworked, so they keep referring people away. The Chair noted that, other than mental health services deficiencies, student-voted priorities do not match faculty-voted priorities. A tally of the voting during last SAC meeting is found here : The Chair summarized the answers he got to his letter to the Health Center. Erin M. Halligan Avery’s complete answers are below: Question 1: What are the current services available to students?

Currently we have four therapists on staff who provide single session interventions, psycho-educational resources, brief contracted counseling, short term individual counseling, crisis services (between 1-3pm Monday-Friday) and off campus referrals. We also have a psychiatric nurse practitioner on staff two days a week who meets with students and prescribes psychiatric medication. Additional details about each of these services can be found here: http://www.geneseo.edu/health/cs_services Q2: How long is the current wait for a student attempting to get an appointment to see a therapist/physician?

Currently, the initial wait time to see one of our four counselors is about 2 1/2 - 3 weeks. This is very unusual; typical wait for this time of year is about 1 week. This increase in wait time is due to the number of students who are seeking counseling services and our limited number of therapists who are trying to balance seeing students for intakes, seeing students for recurring appointments, including crisis hours on one of their schedules 1-day a week, and participating in events on campus. Q3: How many students wishing to see a therapist are turned away? Please break this down for different types of psychologist, psychiatrist, or therapist etc.

No students are "turned away" although students may feel differently based on our wait times (3 weeks can feel like an awfully long time for a student to wait to see a therapist if he/she has a concern). We reserve from 1-3pm Monday through Friday for "crisis appointments" in the event a student feels he or she needs to be seen that day. Because the on-call therapist can only see 2 students in this time frame, we do our best to reserve these appointments for students who are more "crisis" in nature (e.g., current thoughts of suicide, current thoughts about hurting another person, recent assault or abuse, knowledge of another person being abused or assaulted, hallucinations or delusions, recent major loss/death of a loved one, witnessing or experiencing a recent traumatic event). Additionally, students can feel "turned away" if their level of care surpasses what our therapists are able to provide based on our bi-weekly therapy model. If a student needs weekly therapy or we feel/the student feels he/she has specific needs that necessitate regular intervention, we have to refer these students off campus.

Q4: Is it known what number of Geneseo students will need services during their estimated four years here?

In any given year, we typically see 10-12% of the student population.

(James McLean, 245-5897) Back issues available at http://www.geneseo.edu/senate/bulletin Page 51

Q5: Is it known what number of Geneseo students have chronic/acute cases? What is the general case load?

[Beth] I don't think it is possible to define "chronic/acute cases." However, this year, we did see a significant increase in students returning for services from previous years--a 28% increase in the month of September alone. In terms of caseloads, at any given time, each counselor may be seeing anywhere from 30-50 students on a biweekly basis.

Q6: Are their times of year when services cannot meet demand (say finals)?

The demand for our counseling services almost always outweighs the number of therapists we have to offer these services. Unfortunately, this is not just a Geneseo problem, it seems to be the case nationwide. If I [Erin] were to characterize the "demand" from students I would say most students want to be seen within the week they present with their concern, some on the day of their concern, and would like to be seen regularly after their initial meeting. Students are displeased knowing they have to wait upwards of 3 weeks to get in for an appointment. They are also displeased when we tell them they have to be seen off campus for weekly (or more comprehensive) therapeutic support. Additionally, because of our limited crisis hours, students who feel they are in crisis are often displeased that they cannot walk into Counseling Services and be seen by someone immediately. There is an increase in request for services during the most stressful times of year (midterms, a week or two before finals), however, as stated above we are seeing an increase overall this year. Q7: Other than orientation, how are services advertised?

In addition to orientation, we have a comprehensive web site, a Facebook page, plus Twitter and Instagram pages. Our counselors participate in a GOLD series (Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds) as well as other events on campus. We have been hesitant to advertise too much, especially this academic year, because of the increased demand for services and our limited resources.

Q8: What way can the Student Affairs Committee support the work of the Lauderdale Health Center.

procedures and seeing if there is anything we can do to adjust our current services and better meet I wish there was an "easy fix" to this problem. I [Erin] am committed to reviewing our Counseling Services students needs, however, my assessments thus far are similar to those felt nation-wide- we have a significant increase in demand for services and not enough resources to account for this increase. In an ideal world, money would be made available to hire many more therapists, space around campus would be made available for these therapists, online therapy options would be available and I would have at least 1 therapist available for all-day crisis appointments and case management tasks. I would be more than happy to partner with the Student Affairs Committee to tackle this incredibly difficult, but paramount challenge.

The Committee’s discussion of the issues facing students was heated. If student fees pay for the services, why not increase them? Why can’t the college come up with more money to support the students with mental health problems. It was mentioned that other SUNYs max out at six counselors. Other significant differences are return phone calls/follow-up and group sessions. Geneseo does not seem to offer any.

The Committee had a hard time identifying problems that could become concrete proposals to bring to the Senate floor. Someone suggested we propose group therapy sessions which will be need-specific, such as stress-management during finals. One of the students mentioned that last year there was a group session for students with similar problems/issues, but she is not sure whether this is happening this year.

We asked the chair to find out whether Group counseling is currently available. Motion approved unanimously.

Right now ther e’s a call center from 8am to 8 pm and

Lifeline

, a 24 hour Crisis/Emergency Resources. The Center does offer crisis appointments for real or perceived emergencies.

The second item on the agenda was the suggestion that all members of SAC attend a Safe Zone training session for obvious reasons. While everyone in the committee seemed open to the idea, the committee felt that members should attend individual sessions rather than attempt to schedule one for all SAC Committee members together. The third item on the agenda concerned the number of FAQ questions and how irrelevant some of them seem. FAQ questions should address what students really want to know. Should a SAC member talk to the Director of First-Year Studies on behalf of the committee to find out how they come up with relevant questions. Should students be surveyed to identify their questions. Does Student Affairs need permission to conduct such research? Students will email Luke Bamburoski the questions they need answers to.

Another item the Committee Chair called our attention to is SUNY’s request for feedback on social media concerns. We can spread the word about their call by sharing this link with people in our departments/classes/offices.

We did not know how to address Student Teachers’ Transportation Issues-- how to get to their schools if they do not have a car. Still on the agenda is Advisement- faculty members with too many advisees do not have time to meet with all of them. Now we have a Junior Pre-Grad Check added to our duties. We were reminded of an existing report from the advising task force: http://www.geneseo.edu/provost/advising-task-forceWe Should there be a faculty member in each department (with a course release) who would do all pre-grad checks?

Part-time faculty members of Senate will receive money from the DSA pool for their participation. We need faculty representatives on the Budget Priorities Committee – deciding how to handle this since we have not been following the constitutions. Committees can bring items to Senate without getting them approved by Executive Committee. University Faculty Senate decided that we can revisit statements on academic freedom. Currently, 75% of students applying for graduation require a check for paperwork. 4% of students need another course to graduate. 25% of applicants do not get their degree 90 days after graduation. We would like the provost to include faculty and students (junior year) in the ongoing development of advising procedures.  Vice Chair’s Report: Three winners have been chosen for excellence in adjunct teaching awards and they have started reviewing nominations for other awards as well. We will announce the committee members in the Senate meeting and thank them.  Treasurer’s Report: Donations are going well. We have received $672.68 in donations so we have a positive balance of $570. There is a problem with Geneseo Foundation. Some people reported donating but their donations were not received in the Senate account. We may rethink buying clocks for retirees but our decision should reflect the majority’s opinion. We will discuss this more next meeting  University Faculty Senator Report: University Senate has changed operating procedures in terms of their communication plan. There is a report on the website right after the plenary. President’s report returned to the discussion of applied learning. Not everyone agrees that applied learning is a reasonable requirement for every graduate of a SUNY institution. The SUNY provost was questioned about 150,000 degree completions per year and whether that is realistic. There was a resolution that every SUNY campus should have an open meeting on issues of academic freedom. There was a resolution about family medical leave. A service learning resolution was postponed until the next meeting. There was a discussion about making SUNY Excels metrics more suitable to comprehensive campuses.

Senate Reports:

President Denise Battles

Dr. Battles appreciates and is delighted with the College’s efforts during her inauguration ceremony. The Strategic Planning Group is meeting on November 13, 2015. The College does not currently have a Vision Statement, and she would like to engage the campus in developing a strategic plan. David Irwin has been appointed Interim Assistant Vice President for Communications effective November 5, 2015, with anticipation to have this position filled in the fall.

Chair James McLean As Presiding Officer of Faculty

Nominations for CoNE are closing today. We have one candidate for three positions. Unless anyone volunteers, the positions will become vacant on December 1, 2015. They will then be filled by appointment by the Executive Committee with approval by Senate.

As Senate Chair

· There will be a shift of the 1 st Senate meeting in the default calendar to one week later to accommodate Student Association Senator selection process. · We have Senate seats for part-time faculty, but service is not part of their employment expectations. It has now been arranged that such Senators will receive additional compensation, taken from the DSA pool. · The President needs to appoint two teaching faculty to the Budget Priorities Committee, in consultation with the Executive Committee. If anyone wants their name considered by the Executive Committee, please contact me.

As Executive Committee Chair

The Executive Committee was asked to consider the recent increase, from one to two, in the number of pre-grad checks required for advisement of each student. The concern was that it is an increase in workload. After review of the facts surrounding the issue, the Executive Committee concludes that the change is a reasonable and measured response to the problem of students arriving at graduation without having their affairs in order. At this time, the Executive Committee will not be sending the question on to a standing committee for further consideration. This decision is partly informed by some efforts currently being pursued by the Provost’s Office to ease the administrative load of advising on faculty, without detracting from the academic element that faculty provide.

Vice Chair

Thank you to the hardworking members of the Excellence in Adjunct Teaching Selection Committee: Eric Helms, David Levy, Kirk Anne, Jasmine Tang and Erin Mauro '16.

Meg Stolee

Thanks also to Barbara Rex-McKinney and the student assistants in the History Department. Correspondence: [email protected]

Unfinished Business

The Committee discussed progress on current projects as follows:

Perf Forms

– Anne Pellerin and Rick Gifford reviewed the forms and presented a draft report of their final recommendations for the Committee to review. It was noted that a number of the recommendations made by the 2014-2015 FAC have been incorporated into the revised forms. The final report will be sent to Ken Kallio, Interim Assistant Provost with a copy to Provost Long, and, Associate Provost Gordon. The Committee approved the report. The final report is attached to these minutes. Rick Gifford will provide a final status report to the Executive Committee and close the project. Rick Gifford thanked members of the 2014-2015 FAC for their work on the project and Anne Pellerin for her efforts in bringing the project to conclusion.

Listing of topics for a Geneseo Faculty Handbook

– Dori Farthing, Jim Allen, and Mansokku Lee reported that work is underway and they have posted their Excel spreadsheet for the project on the Committee’s Google Docs. They expect to report their results at the Committee’s January 19, 2016 Committee meeting. Committee members should review the spreadsheet prior to the January 19 meeting and identify any additional topics they think should be included in our report to the Executive Committee.

Academic Assessment Committee Results

– Rick Gifford has a meeting scheduled with Provost Long, Associate Provost Gordon and Ray Spear (Chair of Ad Hoc Administrative Assessment Committee) on November 19 to discuss the report and potential layouts.

November 21, 2015 To: Dr. Kenneth Kallio, Interim Assistant Provost From: Rick Gifford, Chair, 2015 Faculty Affairs Committee Re: Final Report – Personnel Evaluation Forms At the request of the Provost, the Faculty Affairs Committee (FAC) reviewed the proposed personnel evaluation forms to support contract renewal for Lecturers, Visiting Faculty and Adjuncts. In general, we believe the forms, as currently designed, are adequate based on the criteria established. Our comments are primarily focused on ensuring the individuals have access to and understand the criteria by which they are being evaluated. If you have any questions, please contact me. 1.

We recommend the department guidelines (and forms) - relating to how each position mentioned above will be evaluated - be reviewed with the professional at the inception of the contract. For Lecturers (excluding research) and Visiting Faculty, who have responsibilities similar to full time faculty, but at a reduced expectation, we believe it would be particularly valuable to clarify performance expectations, either through a general orientation or discussion with the department chair. 2.

We recommend the burden on department chairs created by these evaluations be kept to a minimum. Our understanding is that the forms, for annual contract renewals, are prepared annually. Assuming our understanding is correct, we ask if it is necessary that an instructor with a demonstrated record of strong teaching be reviewed annually? 3.

The Adjunct Lecturer form provides a line for

Additional Activities

beyond teaching and clearly specifies that these activities should not be a significant consideration in the recommendation for term appointment. Given the criteria, we recommend it be clarified to the Lecturer that the lack of any

Additional Activities

will not be considered detrimental to renewal. 4.

In reviewing the forms last year, the FAC noted there are visiting librarians who are subject to evaluation and contract renewal. Their responsibilities are different than those of teaching faculty and may not be adequately addressed through the proposed forms. Last year’s FAC proposed a performance evaluation form for visiting librarians which we included for your information. Correspondence: [email protected]

FREN 350: Medieval and Renaissance French Literature FREN 355: French Literature of the Classical Period and Enlightenment FREN 360: French Literature from Romanticism to the Present FREN 365: Selected Topics in French Literatures and Cultures: (subtitle) FREN 374: Studies in Francophone Literature FREN 375: French-Canadian Literature SPAN 350: Medieval Spanish Literature SPAN 352: Early Modern Spanish Literature SPAN 362: 18th and 19th Century Spanish Literature SPAN 363: 19th Century Latin American Literature SPAN 372: Contemporary Spanish Literature SPAN 373: Contemporary Latin-American Literature SPAN 382: Selected Topics in Hispanic Literature & Culture: (subtitle) Revised Programs BA in French Minor in French Minor in German BA in Spanish Minor in Spanish Contact: L. Bernard. All actions appear in one of two proposals: a majority FREN and a majority SPAN. Bernard explained that the requirements were listed both for FREN and SPAN, but since the courses have diverged to meet the requirements of outside bodies, the department has moved the upper level literature courses to 400 level. Dept. has embedded writing requirements throughout the courses. SPAN and FREN re-envisioned some courses, so they are no longer mirror images of each other. Some typographical errors were noted for correction. Iyer will add credit hours to FLAI information: 1-2 credits, by appointment, like all directed studies. Vasiliev initiated a discussion concerning courses titled as “Topics”: some are “slot” courses, and some are not. Details concerning the status of each course, such as FREN 465, were clarified. The committee had a long discussion concerning Languages and Literatures’ revised minors: each require a course grade of C- or higher for credits to count toward the minors. No other minors at the college have this requirement. Bernard argued that the new requirement will make it easier for students to migrate from a minor to a major without having to worry about retaking courses for applicable credit. Iyer expressed concern that no other minors have a minimum competency; she also suggested that it will lead to some convoluted waiver practices. There are also issues with General Education fulfillment and how Degreeworks makes note of it. McPherson expressed support for the C- requirement, stating that it would enhance the pedagogical quality of the program. Fischer was surprised that this was not already a common Correspondence: [email protected]

(James McLean, 245-5897) Back issues available at http://www.geneseo.edu/senate/bulletin Page 64

minor requirement. Vasiliev stated concern that a computer system would prevent us from making curricular improvements. Harrison noted that approval of these minors might be understood as a change in undergraduate policy and promised to forward the matter to UPC for consideration. Dantzler thought it was such a change. Bernard and Iyer intend to meet in order to solve the Degreeworks issues. Because there were technically two proposal forms, but many actions proposed, some complicated voting was introduced. Motion to vote on the majority FREN proposal with the minors removed from consideration: Harrison. Second: McPherson. Proposal approved:

unanimous vote.

Motion to vote on minors from both majority FREN and majority SPAN proposals, with C minus requirements intact: Harrison. Second, Vasiliev. Proposal approved:

9 in favor, 1 against.

The committee returned to the majority SPAN proposal. Typographical errors were noted for correction, and the “slot” course material was confirmed or corrected, per the majority FREN proposal. Motion to vote, Harrison. Second, Froome. Proposal approved:

unanimous vote.

III. Unfinished Business

Discussion about new proposal form. Harrison pointed out that with the new form it is difficult to separate parts for committee vote. Vasiliev said that the Geography Department likes the new form. Bernard felt that the new form is helpful, but a bit confusing when it comes to majors and minors.

IV. New Business

None.

V. Announcements
