A. Minutes of May 6, 1997. Approved as Corrected.
B. Action Items
- B.S. in Environmental Science. Jones moved and Caskey seconded approval. Steve Overmann
stated that this was first developed as a minor, which was approved last year. It
is a very rigorous program with no home department. The business option is a strong
feature of the program. Ed Buis asked whether additional funding would be required.
Overmann answered that the director and clerical funding will come from mission enhancement
funds. McDougall asked if there were environmental science journals for which additional
subscriptions would be needed. Overmann responded that we already subscribe “to a
handful.” Additional subscriptions may be necessary, but would be handled by reallocation.
The motion passed unanimously.

summarized the program objectives and curriculum. After brief discussion, the motion
Name change: Graphics Technology. Jones moved and McGowan seconded approval of changing
