RE:              Thursday March 24, 2011 UAPC Meeting – 350 BASCOM HALL, 3:30 – 5:00 p.m.

I am going to be out of town at a WAA Wisconsin Weekend Away event on March 24 so Dean Sandefur will chair in my place.  I am planning for one agenda item at our April meeting to be a discussion of some of the implications of the public authority proposal in relation to academic planning issues.

1.        Automatic Consent Item – Minutes of the February 17, 2011 meeting.  UAPC Doc 2011.03.24.01.

2.        Approval Item – Certificate in Nuclear Engineering Materials, Department of Engineering Physics and the Department of Materials Science Engineering, College of Engineering. Presenters:  Steven Cramer, associate dean; Michael Corradini, professor and chair of Engineering Physics.  UAPC Doc 2011.03.24.02.

3.        Approval Item – Entitlement to Plan a BS-Athletic Training, Department of Kinesiology, School of Education.  Presenters:  Julie Underwood, dean, School of Education; Dorothy Edwards, professor and chair of Kinesiology.  UAPC Doc 2011.03.24.03.

4.        Approval Item – Center for Child Welfare Policy and Practice, School of Social Work and Institute for Research on Poverty, College of Letters and Science.  Presenters: Susan Ellis Weismer, associate dean in Letters and Science; Kristen Shook Slack, professor and associate director of Social Work; Jennifer Noyes, research at the Institute for Research on Poverty.  UAPC Doc 2011.03.24.04.

5.        Annual Report – Undergraduate General Education Committee (UGEC).  Presenter:  Elaine Klein, chair of the UGEC chair and assistant dean, College of Letters and Science.  The UAPC receives an annual report from the UGEC because the UAPC authority for oversight of general education is delegated to this committee.  UAPC Doc 2011.03.24.05.

6.        Automatic consent approval – Rename the graduate certificate “Organizational and Technological Innovation in Society” to “Strategic Innovation: Technology, Organizations and Society”, Department of Management and Human Resources, School of Business.  This action was adopted by the Graduate Faculty Executive Committee at their February 2011 meeting.  By UAPC policy, name changes for graduate certificates are automatic consent items.  UAPC Doc 2011.03.24.06.

7.        Automatic consent approval – Rename the “Center for the History of Print Culture in Modern America” to the “Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture”, School of Library and Information Studies, College of Letters and Science.  By UAPC policy, name changes for centers are usually handled as automatic consent items.  UAPC Doc 2011.03.24.07.

8.        Information Item – Review of Obsolete Courses.  I am forwarding to you this letter from Andrea Poehling that describes plans for future reviews of the course array for your information.  UAPC Doc 2011.03.24.08.
