  • Approval of the Minutes
    Due to Hurricane Mathew impact, the October 6 meeting was cancelled. Approval of minutes from September 1, 2016 meeting (posted on the web) and the minutes were approved.
  • Welcome/Announcements

    Coffee, Hot Tea, & Water, provided for the meeting.
    Lunch will be ready by 11:30 a.m. for the Committee members.
    The meeting will probably more than 2 hours.
    Welcome CCB replacement, Dr. Adel El-Ansary, Professor of Marketing & Logistics, and thank you for his service.

    Leah announced and required the 5-year inactive courses will be automatically “discontinued.” To continue a course, an APC will need to be created to request to re-create the course. Will be sent through APC as a new course. A list of such courses inactive for 5 years will be generated and sent to department chairs.

    Leah also mentioned about the “Experimental courses” can be done for 2 semesters before it needs to be created as a regular course through APC package.

    Michael talked about the discussion of potential new APC system, possibly a few years in the future – might have better integration with other systems, but would need preparatory work as academic divisions may have inconsistencies. Current steps should be to look within each college and ensure consistency in program organization. What changes are desirable in a new APC system to move forward and improve efficiency?

    For Faculty attention:
    Any packages are unable to finish during this meeting, they will be forwarded to the November 3
    APC mtg.

    Any APC Workflow package corrections needed to be resubmitted on 2 to 3 work days after the meeting; otherwise, the packages cannot meet the Executive Committee meeting agenda deadline.
