Welcome and introductions.
Too few Council members attended the meeting to have a quorum; no official business conducted.
The Chair distributed handouts including: General Education Course Inventory Form and pages from the University Studies website of Southeast Missouri State University (materials were mailed to members not attending the meeting). SEMO is a nationally-known and acclaimed general education program.
The Chair requested council members to discuss with department chairs and faculty the best way in which to determine the top two outcomes and objectives covered in each general education course before the next meeting on 9 February 2004.
Council members also were requested by the Chair to solicit input concerning the way in which general education courses addressed and assessed the outcomes and objectives of general education and determine if these data have been used to modify the course?
Lastly, the Chair requested council members to solicit input from departmental faculty concerning modification of the outcomes and objectives in the General Education Program; members provided with outcomes and/or objectives of general education programs at other colleges and universities in Oklahoma as well as the OSRHE requirements for awarding a bachelor’s degree.
The Chair informed the Council that the report from the HLC had not been received but they would be provided a copy as soon as it was available.
Next meeting will be held at 2:00 pm on 9 February 2004 in BS 205.
Adjourned at 3:00 pm
