Updates from the Academic Affairs Committee

submitted by maherk@augsburg.edu

The AAC met for the final time this academic year on Wednesday, May 5. The following proposals were approved at that meeting:

Academic Policy: Topics courses may be offered three (3) times before they need to be approved as a permanent course. The course may not be offered a fourth time without AAC permanent approval.

HPE 203 will become cross-listed with BIO 103.

SPA 11X is a new course.

PWC 310 changed its course title.

PWC 330 is a new course.

RLN 300 will provide the signature Search for Meaning requirement for advanced transfer students.
This was the final meeting with Phyllis Kapetanakis as Chair of AAC. It was also the final meeting for former Chair, David Crowe. AAC wants to thank them both for their service, as well as give a special thank-you to Lizzy Hoversten who served as this year’s student representative.
