This course is part of a program modification of the Masters of Rehabilitation Counseling (MRC) degree program. The course currently exists as an elective in the rehabilitation counseling program. As part of the program modification, it becomes a required course that addresses changing accreditation standards. The change from 700-level to 600-level is more consistent with a basic introduction to the fundamentals of culture and disability. The change to 600-level also indicates that the course is appropriate for advanced undergraduates as well as graduate students. The content of the class is updated but retains most of the content of the original class. For the program modification, the primary course designator is changing from RHAB to RCON.

Ref: RCON 701 & 705
To: Kerry Lachance:
Kerry, after our INDEV discussion Thursday, February 23, 2017 it is apparent that both RCON 701 & 705 have both been approved for on – line course before the INDEV committee was established. No further action with respect to the USC InDEV on-line courses is necessary.
Thank you for your valuable time and expertise. Thank you especially for taking the time to be part of our discussion.
Don Jordan, Chair InDEV 2016 – 2017
Your proposal is being returned for the following reason(s):
- The Student Learning Objectives should be Learning Outcomes
Undergraduate grading options should not be in a 600 level course.
- Need to clarify if this is a class for Masters students exclusively. undergrads can enroll in 500 and 600 level classes
Please address the above and return this proposal, through all the channels, by March 17 at noon in order to be considered for approval by the Faculty Senate at the December meeting. Should your proposal not reach the committee by the stated deadline, the next Curricula and Courses review cycle will begin in mid-March. We are looking forward to your making this cycle.
KC Kirasic, Chair
Faculty Senate Committee on Curricula and Courses
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
