4.        Policy Discussion – UAPC and Public Authority Planning.  UAPC members Gary Green and Lisa Forrest have agreed to serve as a sub-group to work with Jocelyn Milner to do preparatory work for planning for UAPC policy changes if public authority is approved for UW-Madison.  I’d like to have some preliminary discussion of that topic at this UAPC meeting.  The overview chart of approval is attached as a starting point.  This chart shows which actions are advanced to UW System Administration and the Board of Regents.  UAPC Doc 2011.04.21.04.

5.        Policy Discussion – Definition and Criteria for Service Learning.  Presenter: Nancy Mathews, director of the Morgidge Center for Public Service and professor of Environmental Studies.  Prof. Mathews is requesting that the UAPC endorse the proposed definition and criteria for service learning.  Specifically the request is to endorse the content of Appendix A (definition, criteria, and models) and Appendix B (process) of the proposal.  UAPC Doc 2011.04.21.05UAPC Doc 2011.4.21.05_supplement

6.        Information Item – Course Subject Listing Guidelines.  The current guidelines for approving Course Subject Listings were approved by the UAPC in 2005.  Since that time, there have been many changes, including the demise of the printed Timetable, which renders some of the language in the guidelines obsolete.  Jocelyn Milner, director of Academic Planning and Analysis, undertook an administrative revision of the guidelines to reflect contemporary language without changing the policy elements.  The edited policy is attached.  Unless there are objections, after this UAPC meeting the revised version will replace the 2005 version.  UAPC Doc 2011.04.21.06.
