Curriculum Committee 
Annual Report, 2007-2008

The Curriculum Committee met 12 times during the 2007 – 2008 academic year (with one more meeting scheduled) and also conducted business via e-mail. The committee continued to receive proposals via the electronic course proposal system for catalog courses, special topics, first year seminars and, recently, May Experience. The committee continued to work with Brad Barron and Kevin Treu to make minor adjustments to the system. 
The committee endorsed 445 proposals, most of which were associated with the new curriculum. Of the total proposals endorsed, 126 were First Year Seminar proposals. One course was deleted from the curriculum. The committee continued revising its operating procedures in response to the new calendar and curriculum.

The chair thanks Curriculum Committee members for their inordinate amount of time and thoughtful deliberations committed to work of the Curriculum Committee: Linda Bartlett, John Beckford, Doug Cummins, Tom Kazee, Dan Sloughter, John Snyder, Ben Storey, and Helen Lee Turner for all of their hard work and input. In addition, the student members also worked very diligently on this committee: Elizabeth Goss and Joylaina Speaks. Betty Kelly provided necessary resource information. The members of the committee especially thanks Brad Barron for his help with the process of endorsing the extensive load of proposals and his time spent on making corrections and updating proposals on the course proposal system. The Committee thanks Kevin Treu for his continued work in fine tuning the online course proposal system, which streamlines the entire process.

Respectfully submitted,
