WESTERN WASHINGTON UNIVERSITY

ACADEMIC COORDINATING COMMISSION MINUTES

Regular Meeting  --  February 27, 2007

 

Vice Chair Roger Thompson called the meeting of the Academic Coordinating Commission to order on February 27, 2007, in OM340 at 4:10 p.m.  Thompson explained that Chair Jim Hearne was in the hospital for unknown reasons, and that he would be leading the meeting as soon as a quorum was present.  Members initially began discussion of a motion regarding Add/Drop, but the discussion was postponed when a quorum arrived and the meeting was called to order at 4:15 pm.  There were eleven (11) members present, and four (4) others for a total of  fifteen (15). (See attached roster).

Huxley has not yet addressed the issue of alpha suffices in these minutes.  Commissioners agreed to accept the minutes, but do not approve ESCI361a or the capstone major courses 498a, b, c, with the alpha suffices and await further clarification from Huxley College, hopefully prior to the catalog deadline.
