 9. Please list the Learning Outcomes of the Plan/Emphasis (see degree major assessment
    webpage http://www4.nau.edu/assessment/main/degree/degree.htm), if applicable to the proposal.

 Unchanged

 10. Will this proposal affect other plans, sub plans, or course offerings, etc.? Yes   No
       If yes, describe the impact and attach written responses from the affected academic
       units prior to college curriculum submission.

 11. Does this proposal have the support of the Dean’s office, including sufficient resources to
     administer the plan?                                                        Yes       No

 12. Is this plan currently offered at the same academic level by any other academic unit at
     NAU?         Yes          No
          If yes, list the plan(s) with duplicate material. If the duplication is great than 20%,
          explain why NAU should establish the plan.


  13. Justification for plan proposal.

ACC 502, 505, and 556 are being deleted and co-convening removed. For the change in
name of the consulting track to the Applied Management track, the term “consulting”
implies a high level of analysis and expertise which the students are gaining but do not yet
have as well as significant deliverables to a client which the students may not be able to
produce. As such, we have renamed it the Applied Management track to send a more
accurate message to the businesses with which the students will be working.


 Revised 06/22/2011
Answer 14 for UCC/YCC only:


14. Will this requirement be a Student Individualized Plan?                             Yes          No
           (Due to the flexible nature of Student Individualized Plans, selecting yes
           will require the requesting academic unit to submit an exception for every
           student in this plan. These exceptions outline the approved individual
          requirements for encoding by Degree Progress staff in the system).
