On January 17, 2003, Dean Mary Ann Rankin of the College of Natural Sciences filed with the secretary of the Faculty Council the following proposed changes in the requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Biology, Option I: Ecology, Evolution, and Behavior, in the College of Natural Science chapter in The Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006. The dean and the College of Natural Sciences Course and Curriculum Committee approved the proposal on November 18, 2002. The secretary has classified this proposal as legislation of exclusive application and primary interest to a single college or school.

The edited proposal was received from the Office of Official Publications on April 15, 2003, and was sent to the Committee on Undergraduate Degree Program Review from the Office of the General Faculty on April 23, 2003.
