Course Revision #1

I. Give complete UMM catalog entry (deletions in strikethru font, additions underlined)(see instructions)

IS 1001f. First-Year Seminar: Human Diversity. (CE FYS; 2 cr)

This first-year course aims to facilitate students’ transition from high school to a collegiate environment. Special emphasis is placed on themes that help sensitize students to the spectrum of ideas within the academic setting as well as contemporary society.

II. Rationale (see instructions):

The general education category title is being changed. 1) The new title more accurately describes the actual activity of the requirement. 2) Courses in the catalog sponsored by Continuing Education will be designated "CE." Changing the title will avoid possible confusion from two areas using the same abbreviation. 3) The change reflects the term commonly used to refer to the requirement.
