Invitees:  Nancy Lough

Other: Alice Corkill (Chair: Educational Psychology and Higher Education)

Nancy presented the history of the proposal and its timing

Discusses that diversity is woven throughout the program and not just in a course

Question from Christine, is this focused on coaches only?

            Response: no, it is an aspect only

Question from Doris: Why not include a specific course on diversity

            Response> it was decided to not have a focus-only course and to do it throughout the curriculum

Greg: Discussion from last mtg was about whether faculty voted on this proposal as in curriculog, or something else

            Response: it is slightly different, there are some changes that were done in working with Gail to change ideas/phrasing for the board alone – no Curriculum changes

Christine: Why not have a foundational course and also interweaven throughout

            Response: Confused as to why this committee is looking so specifically at the curriculum, that should be the faculty teaching it

Christine: this committee has reviewed proposals like this before

Greg: concurring, this is the role of the committee

            Response: Some amount of frustration due to concerns being raised by a member of her dept that also sits on this committee

Motion passes with complete support: 15-0.
