Curriculum Implementation
 Father Lannon signed the document
 Goes to board of Trustees in October
 Implementation is a multi-year
process
Issues Discussed
 How to graduate students with only a portion of the new
curriculum in place?
 How to graduate students who can opt for either
curriculum?
 Can First Year Seminars (FYS) be taken by upper
classmen; can other courses satisfy FYS during
transition?
 Implications for Facilities, esp. regarding science labs for
non-majors – 8 year phase-in.
 Course certification committees should be formed with
equal representational faculty membership.
Issues Discussed
 How should faculty be selected for:
 First Year Seminar (need 60 sections, offered fall &
spring)
 Diversity
 Globalization
 Non-western tradition
 Ethics Intensive
 Writing Intensive
 GEP Assessment
 Faith and Reason Course (not representationalfaculty from affected areas)
Composition of Implementation
Task Force
 Implementation Task Force needs to be formed as
follows:
 9 members: 2 faculty from each college, 2 faculty
from Faculty Senate (1 HSB, 1 CAS), 2 deans and
Registrar, ex officio; all faculty should be tenured.
 Faculty Senate Executive Committee proposes 1 from
each college, to be confirmed by the Faculty Senate.
 College Councils determine method of selection and
determine 2 representatives each and report to John
Tudor so Senate can balance in terms of rank, gender
and division. CAS should nominate faculty from two
different divisions.
 Chair should be elected by members of the Task
Force.
