Updates from the Academic Affairs Committee

submitted by maherk@augsburg.edu

On Monday, September 28, David Crowe stepped down as AAC Chair (though he remains on the committee), and Phyllis Kapetanakis was voted to take over as his replacement. The committee also welcomed student representative, Elizabeth Hoversten.

AAC approved two proposals at the meeting. The Languages department will be offering Readings In Comparative Literature (previously taught as a Topics course) and it will be cross listed with existing English courses (ENL 360: The Classical Tradition and ENL 361: The Medieval World).

The Biology major added Freshwater Ecology (Bio425) to the list of options under the “organismal biology” requirement.
