CAPC Meeting

November 18, 2003
Meeting was called to order at noon.
Members: Joan Bass, Diane Burns, Mark E. Davis, Peter Fitzpatrick, Rebecca Gmeiner, Sharon Hoffman, Susan Hornbuckle, Rhonda McLain, Antoinette Miller, George Nakos, Adel Novin, Kim Robinson, R.B. Rosenburg, Steve Spence, and Bob Welborn.
Others Present: Cathie Aust, Ginny Bass, Larry Booth, Anthony Giovannitti, Jeff Hammer, Jim Mackin, Judith Plawecki, Art Rosser, Ray Wallace, and Tammy Wilson.
1. Minutes of 11-3-03 were approved with one correction on item 2.

2. BAS Curriculum.

  • Bass reviewed changes and a motion was made by Hornbuckle and seconded by Robinson to approve. The committee approved the changes. (See the minutes from Nov. 4 for details.)

3. Drafting certificate and AAS: The courses with BSUR will change to TEC and the School of Technology will teach. Motion was made by Hornbuckle and seconded by Robinson. The committee approved. (See the minutes from Nov. 4 for details.)

4. “Impact of Technology” course was approved at second reading. The motion was made and committee approved with one abstention. (See the minutes from Nov. 4 for details.)

5. New Admission Standards: The impact is low on Freshman with an index under 2300. The new standard will be implemented over a three-year period. The overall strategy is to improve retention and there are other things being done as well. There was concern that the new standard would change the mission of the University. The committee discussed and a motion was made by Welborn and seconded by Robinson to approve the new standards. The proposal was approved with one opposed.

6. Deletion of Associate degrees: Below are the proposals by the schools of Technology, Arts & Sciences, and Health Sciences. Motion was made by Welborn, seconded by Hornbuckle, and approved at first reading by committee.

School of Arts and Sciences

Eliminate the Associate of Science in Agriculture and Environmental Science; Biology; Business Education; Chemistry; Engineering; Forestry; Medicine; Pharmacy; and Physics and the Associate of Arts in Art; Criminal Justice; Economics; English; History; Journalism and Mass Communications; Law; Music; Political Science; Sociology; Spanish; Teacher Education; and Theatre.

Rationale: This proposal supports the University-wide plan to eliminate associate degrees in areas where a bachelor’s degree is available. Arts and Sciences has already been approved to offer Biology, History, Communication and Media Studies, and Teacher Education at the four-year level, and we have proposals currently at the Board of Regents for baccalaureate programs in Criminal Justice and Music Education, and furthermore both English and Political Science will go to the Board of Regents for approval in Spring 2004 in anticipation of a Fall 2004 implementation. The remaining associates degrees in this list are being eliminated because Clayton State is only approved to offer the Associate of Science or the Associate of Arts degrees, without a named area of concentration, and therefore these area concentrations should not be listed in our inventory of approved degree programs. Furthermore, the human and other resources currently available in Arts and Sciences are not sufficient to allow us to provide adequate coursework in these associate degree areas at the same time that we are expanding course offerings to accommodate new baccalaureate programs.
School of Health Sciences
A. Eliminate the AS degree program/major in Medical Technology

Rationale: This program is not and has not been offered at CCSU.

B. Eliminate the AS degree program/major in Occupational Therapy

Rationale: This program is not and has not been offered at CCSU.

C. Eliminate the AS degree program/major in Physical Therapy

Rationale: This program is not and has not been offered at CCSU.

D. Eliminate the AA degree program/major in Physical Education/Health

Rationale: This program is not offered or, to the best of my knowledge, ever been offered at CCSU.

E. Eliminate the AA degree program/major in Health Information Management

Rationale: This program is not offered at CCSU. In fact, Health Care Information Systems Management is actually an optional emphasis area in the Health Care Management program.

F. Eliminate the AS degree program in Health Sciences
Rationale: This is not really a degree program and is not listed in our catalog. It was designed to serve as a vehicle for students wishing to transfer to another USG after completing core curricular courses for health related programs. It is unnecessary and essentially duplicative given the core and transfer policies of the USG.
School of Technology
Dropped effective end of Summer, 2004:

510904N1 Emergency Medical Technology (Cert)

470101N2 Electronic Technology (Cert)

XXXXXXX Railroad Operations Technology (AAS) (Currently inactive with no students enrolled)

Dropped effective end of Fall, 2004:

AASET 470101N3 Associate of Applied Science in Electronic Technology

AASPT 510904N3 Associate of Applied Science in Paramedic Technology

7. Proposal to remove CPTG 1002 and CPTG 1010 from Area B2 (proposal is below). This was a first reading and a motion was made by Welborn, seconded by Hornbuckle, and approved by the committee. The second reading will be at the next meeting in Dec.

A. Drop CPTG 1002 from Area B and from the course offerings at CCSU.
Rationale: This course was last taught in Spring 2002, nearly two years ago.  When it was taught, it was taught by faculty in Center for Academic Assistance or in the School of Health Sciences; however, it shows up as the responsibility of CIMS since the active courses with this prefix belong to CIMS.  We have no intention of offering the course and suspect that it is a course that no longer serves a good purpose. We have inquired of other schools, and none indicated an interest in retaining the course in the curriculum.
B. Drop CPTG 1010 from the choices in Area B but retain the course in the CCSU curriculum.
Rationale: This course currently is an option in Area B for those who have taken or exempted COMM 1001 but is very rarely used to count in Area B.  If we were to eliminate CPTG 1010 (and CPTG 1002) from Area B, Area B2 would be focused on courses which include objectives related to spoken communication – the primary curricular focus of this area. The majority of students who take CPTG 1010 are Information Technology students who take the course as a requirement in the major, and most of the other students who take it are students who are applying it to Area F. CPTG 1010 is allowed Area D2 in combination with CPTG 1111. CPTG 1111 has not been offered since Fall 1998 but is included in the schedule for Spring 2004, and CIMS plans to offer annually each spring semester.
The inclusion of these options in Area B2 creates complexity in Area B2 that seems of minimal benefit to students. We believe that acceptance of these recommendations will allow a much simpler presentation of Area B2 without unduly hampering students who need or desire to take CPTG courses.

8. WebBSIT: Booth explained that there are five institutions participating in WebBSIT. The students in the program will be shared and will take courses at all of the institutes. Students at any of the institutions may take the courses offered should there be spaces that are not taken by the students admitted to the WebBSIT program. The tuition is substantially higher than regular tuition ($265 per credit hour or $795 for full load). The committee discussed the proprosal and a motion was made by Welborn, seconded by Hornbuckle and approved by the committee at first reading. (below is the proposal)
