ANNUAL REPORT OF THE

CURRICULUM COMMITTEE

FOR 2002-03

 

The Curriculum Committee (CC) held 15 regular meetings during the academic year 2002-03.  There were ten (10) meetings during fall semester, and five (5) meetings during spring semester.

 

CATALOG CHANGES

 

This was a catalog year.  Several changes were made to each division.  Catalog changes were presented in the order of Humanities, Science & Math, Social Sciences, Education and IS & CE, allowed two weeks for each Division, finished on November 13, 2002.

 

FALL SEMESTER

 

First Year Seminar Recommendations: Discussed the proposal submitted by the FYS Steering Committee.  CC accepted the proposal made by the FYS Steering Committee and will move forward with their recommendations and clarifications.  This proposal will be sent to Campus Assembly

 

Graduation  Standards:  Brenda Boever had sent out graduation standards information from the project she worked on with Ruth Thielke last spring.  This information will be used by high schools and the college to advise students who attend UMM under the Post Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO) to determine how UMM courses will be used to meet high school graduation requirements.

 

African American Studies Minor Proposal:  A revised version of the African American Studies Minor that was just approved by Campus Assembly was distributed.  The minor would not be in the next catalog because it will not get to the Regents until February 2003, at the earliest.

 

The Big Idea:  Schuman addressed the Curriculum Committee to explain a new proposed program for UMM that is currently called “The Big Idea”. This program would provide the opportunity for every student here at UMM to study abroad during May term after their sophomore year.  Schuman went on to explain how the program would operate and what financial implications would arise. This idea came from the International Programs Committee and if we do it UMM will be the only institution in America that would have this type of program.   Schuman explained that this is a major logistical enterprise and the magnitude of it has not been underestimated. Possible funding could come from three sources, an endowment, a grant for a 2-3 year term or funding from a modest increase in tuition/legislative allocation.   The people in Admissions who have been consulted believe that the program will be a boon for admissions, and that careful external testing will be done to verify that impression.   Implementing this program or a variant thereof will have a large positive impact on our international programs.  Schuman stated that there are two issues that keep arising; one is that it is not a good idea to let them pick a place and that UMM should pick the place where they will travel. The other concern is that we should let the students go to any of three or four places we suggest.

SPRING SEMESTER

 

EDP Subcommittee:  Subcommittee members were Jenny Nellis, Van Gooch, and Amanda Johnson.  Proposals were received and awarded for a total of $12,000. 

 

Gen Ed Assessment Subcommittee:  UMM gives degrees upon the authority of the Board of Regents and an Accrediting Agency.  We were reviewed by NCA and we need to show in the next two years progress in our assessment.  The Assessment Committee has asked the Curriculum Committee for a subcommittee to study assessment in the general education area.  The task of the subcommittee, with one representative from each Division, is to come up with concrete goals and objectives for the general education requirements. 

 

Class meeting outside of scheduled time:  MCSA asked CC to look into class meetings outside of the scheduled class time that students be required to attend.  CC did discuss this issue two years ago and around April 2001 CC adopted a motion that additional meetings outside of the regular scheduled class time be listed in the class schedule, however, this never happened. 

 

CC discussed the Resolution approved by CC on 4/30/01.  It was agreed that the information would be only in the class schedule.  A revised resolution was approved and forwarded to CA for information.

 

Gen Ed Survey Results:  Results of the Gen Ed Survey were explained and the additional memo handed out gave the recommendations from the Assessment of Student Learning Committee to the Curriculum Committee.   From the results of the survey it appears that UMM should do more to explain and/or promote the idea of general education and UMM’s requirements.

 

The Assessment committee is turning the issue over to CC, which can accept or reject their recommendations and act on them if they choose.  It was suggested that CC should suggest to the assessment committee that a pre-test survey should be done.  Three proposals went before CC.

            1. Recommendation that the survey be conducted annually and give

            authority to the Assessment Committee to conduct the survey.

            2. Should the CC empower the Assessment Committee to make

            appropriate decisions in regards to construction of the instrument?

            3. Charge the Assessment Committee to develop a pre-test to evaluate

            the importance of a liberal arts education to the students upon arriving at

UMM.

Proposals were unanimously accepted

 

Adjunct Committee Reports:  CC has received three of the four adjunct committee reports. The Minority Experience Committee and International Programs Committee both recommend that the committees continue. The Academic Support Services Committee recommends that it possibly be consolidated with the Faculty Development Committee.

 

A report was submitted to Campus Assembly that CC recommends that these three committees continue in their current capacity.
