  • Election of Vice Chair
    - Nominations: Cynthia Cummings
    - Vote: Dr. Cynthia Cummings was voted unanimously to be the new APC vice-chair
  • Some Preliminary Notes on the APC Review Process
    •  In order for the APC to consider a request from a curricular unit, a representative from said unit is expected to be present at the corresponding APC meeting.

    • The representative is responsible for taking notes associated with changes suggested by the committee, when the request is “approved with changes.”

    • The APC review process will result in: approval without comments/changes; approval with comments/changes; non-approval; or withdrawal.

    • When copies of programs of study are required they should be obtained from the current online catalog and refer to the POS guidelines & requirement as following link: (http://www.unf.edu/unffa/APC/POS_Guidelines.aspx )

    • When completing “Methods of Evaluation” limit the description to indicate “letter grades will be used.” The instructions were written with the intention of avoiding locking a course into specific methods of evaluation.

    • The APC highly recommends faculty members preparing APC Workflow Packages use the “Helpful Resources for Writing Measurable Learning Outcomes” on the Faculty Association website and APC WfS Helpful Page (http://www.unf.edu/unffa/APC/APC_Workflow_System_%28WfS%29_Helpful_Items.aspx)

    • When listing proposed textbooks, journals, or other required materials to be used in courses, standard reference format should be used. For examples, go to the citation guide available on the library website that explains the APA and MLA styles. The UNF library has a citation handout at http://libguides.unf.edu/citationguide. Regardless of the style used, the following information must be included in the case of books: author(s), title, publisher, and year of publication. In the case of journals the following information must be included: author(s), title, publication, volume, number, pages, and year of publication. In the case of other materials, information that uniquely identifies the source must be included.

    • Curricular requests, which include the addition of numerous courses, should be accompanied by a letter from the appropriate college Dean/s indicating that resources are adequate for the new courses.
  • APC Online Workflow System Updated Information
    The recommendation was to have a resources link which would open in a new tab, so the
    end-user can refer to it while working on the package in the system.
    The APC Workflow System team has already added the tab for “ Information: Directions on how to create an APC form ” onto the main page. The tab is linked with the Faculty Association website – Academic Programs Committee . (FA Homepage.)

    Email ITS if there are any technical problems but make sure to add the following sentence, so your request will be forwarded to Enterprise Systems:

    “When you submit the ticket to the ITS Help Desk, simply write in the ticket that it is to be routed to/assigned to “Enterprise Systems”.
  • Academic Programs Review (Total 7 Packages)

    Reminder:
    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.
