NA RATIONALE: Explain why this change is being made. Address the connection with institutional mission, and/or department, program, and course objectives. The course IQL 101 is already a prerequisite of Geography 395. Geography 395 has the prerequisite already. No duplication is needed. RESOURCES: NA What additional library resources will be required? Has the library been consulted to determine the adequacy of library holdings or to estimate the cost to improve these sufficiently? NA ADVISORY OPINIONS: List the names of affected departments and include department responses. Advisory opinions are required whenever a proposal affects the curricula of other programs. A proposal must list all affected departments. An Advisory Opinion must be solicited at least two weeks prior to delivery of the proposal to the DCC. Affected departments have two weeks to respond to the request for an Advisory Opinion. Responses should be attached to the proposal. In the event that affected departments do not respond, evidence of the request for an Advisory Opinion from non-respondents must be provided. If a proposal affects a curriculum in a division other than that of the sponsor, each relevant department and the DCC in that division must review and approve the proposal as well. (The electronic curriculum review process tracks votes, advisory opinions and comments as required at each stage of the review.) None Updated 14 May 2004.
