Proposal Concerning Restrictions for GUR Courses

Committee members discussed and agreed on a final draft of the proposal concerning restrictions for GUR courses:

�CUE recognizes the benefits of students taking GUR courses throughout their college career at Western. At the same time, departments should keep in mind that the purpose of the GURs is to provide breadth in a liberal arts and sciences education. To this end, GUR courses should be open for enrollment to students outside the major. For GUR courses that have pre-requisites (other than English 101) or other restrictions, departments should indicate the extent to which non-majors can gain access to these courses�.

A motion (forwarded by Mark Neff and seconded) to send the proposal to the Academic Coordinating Commission for review was approved by unanimous consent.
