With the new major maps WGST 112 more explicitly acts as the introductory course to our major/minor. We want to emphasize this fact in the course name. In addition in a survey of our peer institution WGST programs it is common practice to have a named introductory course.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. There is no need to attend the Curricula and Courses meeting, but it is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
John Gerdes, Chair
Faculty Senate Committee on Curricula and Courses
effective term - Fall 2018
