MINUTES OF THE REGULAR FACULTY COUNCIL MEETING OF
MAY 6, 2013


VIII. NEW BUSINESS.

C. Proposed Change to General Information Catalog Language on Simultaneous Majors Policy as Approved by the Educational Policy Committee (D 10328-10329).

Professor Mary Rose (sociology, Educational Policy Committee chair) presented the proposal, noting that the Educational Policy Committee (EPC) approved that a student’s application for simultaneous majors would take into consideration the student’s ability to graduate within four years, accounting for the fact that some programs go beyond four years. In an effort to change the culture and encourage four-year graduation rates, she said the goal was to encourage discussion with the student about the time needed to graduate when an additional major is pursued but to still maintain a flexible policy at this point. There was no discussion of the proposal so Chair Hilley called for the vote. The Faculty Council unanimously approved the proposed change by voice vote.
