      Committee members should review the new courses and be prepared to vote yes or no for approval. Course approval forms and syllabi are found below the agenda in alphabetical order by course subject.

      Note that the course changes (second part of the agenda) are informational only and do not require a vote of the committee. However, if anyone notes concerns regarding the course changes, they can be moved to the regular agenda for discussion and a vote.

      Invitees to the meeting (CC'd on this message) should be prepared to provide a brief introduction to the new course(s) you are proposing. If you are unable to attend the meeting, please invite an appropriate representative to present the course.

      Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
