  1. Minutes: The minutes from the last meeting were approved.
  2. Announcements & updates:  We will discuss the proposal for an interdisciplinary major in Linguistics with the department representatives at 3:45 on November 10th. 
  3. Departmental review:  The committee discussed the review of the department of Religious Studies and the department’s response.
  4. Preparation for the Faculty meeting:  Due to possible problems with formatting of the first email, Diane will ask that the message be resent to all faculty.   The presiding officer of the faculty has offered his suggestions about the order of motions, whether to limit debate, and what is required should the meeting go late.  We discussed the possible types of amendments that might be offered at the meeting.  We identified “first responders” to possible amendments and worked through each motion trying to anticipate questions or amendments. 


   Adjourned at 4:45 p.m.


Respectfully submitted,

Jayne Niemi, Registrar
