||Following a presentation to the Senate on Oct 29, we will
be launching the Faculty Senate "Sage Occasional" news bulletin
with an article about the Core Curriculum Objectives and the faculty deliberation
process. Week of 11/3.
||Next, to gather information concerning the impact of the core proposal,
we will be surveying program representatives to get their feedback on the
objectives, asking both a "should" question (how important is
it that each of the graduates of your program meet this objective?) and
a "can" question (how feesible is it for each of the graduates
of your program can meet this objective? The results of this survey will
be made available to the faculty through the Senate website.
||Then, based on the results of the survey, we will be soliciting position
statements on some subset of the objectives as well as give faculty a chance
to express opinions through email. This material will also be posted.
||Finally, we will hold a special General Faculty Meeting on January 21
to discuss and initiate action on the core proposal by a subsequent ballot
(electronic supplemented by paper).
