    The committee discussed mobilizing departments for Fall 09 PLAS courses and reminding them about including PLAS language in all actual syllabi. It was suggested that committee members communicate to the Chairs in their respective academic divisions what courses have been approved in their Departments. That communication would include a reminder to include PLAS language in the syllabi. The full list of approved courses appears on the GEAC page of the CTL website; that link will be forwarded to committee members.

    Regarding Quantitative Reasoning (QR): it was reported to the committee that a proposal is being considered by the Academic Senate on February 5th to allow current LASAR QR courses to stand as meeting the new PLAS requirements.

    It was reported to the committee that PLAS requirements were recently noted and discussed by the ACE (Adult Collegiate Education) and LEAP (Labor Education & Advancement Project) programs. Both programs need to develop courses which meet PLAS requirements. ACE mainstreams students after two years; those students will need to meet PLAS requirements in order to graduate. Options are being assessed for Fall 09. The easiest may be to give both programs a year's grace with LASAR, to allow them time to develop PLAS courses. This is being discussed at the next UCC meeting.

It was noted that the SEEK (Search for Education, Elevation, and Knowledge) and Honors programs do not need to develop special PLAS courses, as their students will simply have the full bevy of PLAS courses available to them and will need to meet the same requirements as non-SEEK and non-Honors students, as they do now with LASAR requirements.

    Assessment will continue to be discussed by the committee. Pat O'Connor has been invited to the March GEAC meeting.

Adjournment

The meeting was adjourned at 1:45 PM.
