Clinton moved, with LaFaun seconding, that the minutes of 3.14 be approved. LaFaun, Clinton, Terri, and Jeff voted to approve the motion. Melanie abstained. Mel and Patti were not yet present. The motion carried.


Most of the meeting was devoted to completing the task of mapping GE courses to GE Outcomes It was proposed that courses addressing the Social and Behavioral Sciences outcome should also address the Information Technology portion of GE Outcome #2. Terri said she would propose this to her division and return with their thoughts. It was generally agreed that courses meeting the Humanities and Fine Arts requirement should also address GE Outcome #5 ("respond with informed sensitivity to an artistic work or experience "). Jeff wondered if this should apply to studio courses in the fine arts as well as appreciation courses. Patti believed that it should.
