1) Please respond to Liaison Brady Gibbons' comments. This came be done one of two ways: A. Use Comments Block provided in the Justification Tab, or B. Attach a word document of the correspondence between Liaison and Originator that answers their concerns.

2) APA has spoken to Registrar's Office about the Enforced Prerequisites for this 6XX level course. Banner can only list the 2XX and 3XX courses as Unenforced not enforced for Graduate Level courses. We recommend moving the PreReq course to the Unenforced Prereqs section in the Requisites Tab if you still want to keep them.

3) Does this course need a classroom during Finals Week? If the answer is yes, please add Final Exam to the Schedule Types. (Course Info/Schedule Types/Final Exam)

In the Syllabus:

1) The Footnote has "CCE 5XX - Corrosion and Corrosion Control." This course is petitioning to be a 6XX course. Please change this to "CCE 623 - Corrosion of Metals and Corrosion Control."

2) Faculty Senate has approved a new link to Student Conduct. This change goes into Effect Fall 2017.

3) Page 4, Disabled Student Assistance: As of April 14, 2016, the Faculty Senate President announced the Revised Disability Access Services (DAS) statement and implementation plan be effective Summer Term 2016. All proposals submitted after April 14, 2016 will need to have the New DAS Statement:
"Accommodations for students with disabilities are determined and approved by Disability Access Services (DAS). If you, as a student, believe you are eligible for accommodations but have not obtained approval please contact DAS immediately at 541-737-4098 or at DAS notifies students and faculty members of approved academic accommodations and coordinates implementation of those accommodations. While not required, students and faculty members are encouraged to discuss details of the implementation of individual accommodations."

Proposal ID: 101972
Type: New Course
Submission Date: January 9, 2018 2:52pm
Approval Date: February 2, 2018 10:19am
Effective Term: Spring 2018
This course has been offered every year since 2012 as a special topics course under CCE 520. It is an interdisciplinary course that attracts students from several other schools in engineering (e.g. MIME, CBEE, Nuclear) and other colleges (e.g. CEOA and Forestry). Because of the demand, we are planning to offer this course every year in the future; therefore, we would like to receive a permeant course number for it. Continuing the course under CCE 520 has also become administratively challenging. Since 2008 we have added five new faculty members in the area of infrastructure materials (one was a replacement). With this critical cohort, we have significantly overhauled our curriculum offerings and in this series of Category II adjustments we are 1) significantly updating existing coursework, 2) added new courses and combined some previous courses, and 3) renumbering/renaming the vast majority of courses to achieve a logical flow of coursework for graduate students. We have also delineated courses in the 500 level (aimed more at entry and master’s students) and the 600 level (aimed at upper level master’s and PhD students). This effort will ensure that provide a world-class curriculum and experience to our graduate students. This proposed change was presented to the graduate committee for Civil and Construction Engineering on 5/25/17 and all were supportive of the updates

Looks good to me. Although I think it's kind of odd to have sophomore/junior level classes as prerequisites for a 600 level class. Seems that might become a logistical problem, as well.
