Docket Number: 
1231
First Name: 
Michael
Last Name: 
Walter
Facts: 

 - The shortened curricular change cycle dictates that course and/or program change materials and documentation must be approved by various levels of UNI administration (Depertmental, Bugetary Review, College Senates, UCC/GCCC, Faculty Senate), before the Provosts Office can send documentation to the Board or Regents (BOR) Office, thence to ASAC, COPs and finally for BOR review.  The BOR calendar constrains the Fall approval process and therefore all supporting documentation for curricular changes must complete review by Faculty Senate during September.

1. ENVRESMGMT-BA: Environmental Resource Management BA - Interdisciplinary    2. ENVSCI-BS: Environmental Science BS – Earth and Environmental Sciences
