Announcements:

Regarding COMM 496 (History of Cinema), General Education Review Committee members Elizabeth
Hachten and Elizabeth Olson noted that the GERC Committee had not approved the course to be offered
fulfilling the General Humanities requirement. Minutes from the November 2, 2010 GERC meeting, however,
indicate that the course was approved for a GH designation, and the Registrar’s Office has been notified
accordingly.

 Ellie Schemenauer – asked how many times can a workshop 490 be offered? Bruce Bukowski gave some
history, but at one point in time, a workshop could not be offered more than three times, then it must become a
regular class offering.

John Stone thanked everyone for attending. Today was a deadline for the Fall 2011 course proposals and the
reason for so many proposals for being reviewed.

Without further topics to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 3:25 p.m. on a Marshall Anderson/Travis Lange
motion. The motion carried.

Respectfully submitted,

Joan Schrank
