    Approved with the following changes:

    After the list of concentrations, indicate that you will decrease the number of required credits from 25 to 14. List the courses being removed and the ones being moved to other places in the POS.

    DIE6912 and DIE6970 are being changed to variable credit (1-6), but the POS lists both as 6 credits. Must students take the full 6 credits?

    Add text to the summary indicating that the core nutrition requirements have been decreased from 39 to 15. I would also state the number of credits in the research core.

    The summary says NGR7843 is being removed but the POS says it is in the research core. Correct whichever place is incorrect.

    Jillian noted that the state is looking for someone to oversee faculty discipline with INS courses. At present we have some INS courses and it may take longer to have them approved by the state.
