Terminate an existing course Senior Project HSA Senior (4xxx) 970

We are requesting that HSA4970 (Senior Project) be terminated. We do not list the course as students eligible to complete a Senior project do so as part of our internship program. The Senior Project was designed for mid-career students with significant administrative and management experience and allowed eligible students to complete an administrative or research project working in conjunction with a community mentor. We only have an eligible mid-career level student once every two or three years and posting a separate listing for the Senior project created confusion as students without appropriate work experience repeatedly requested the project in lieu of the required internship.
