Per the Syllabus Minimum Requirements website, the Curriculum Council members request that you add the direct link to the student code of conduct. According to the website, "Student Conduct Expectations link: https://beav.es/codeofconduct
(URL must be shown)"
The link in your syllabus does not go directly to the new student code of conduct.

We would prefer to not change the title as it parallels a professional course, PHAR 747, with the same name to avoid confusion. Further, the course title is not “Infectious Diseases” but “Infectious Diseases and Treatments”. The prefix on the course number is PHAR which clearly indicates the academic placement and orientation of the course. It seem unreasonable to ask to reserve this course title for future hypothetical courses on a similar topic. If the College of Pharmacy cannot teach a course on treatments for infectious diseases, no one should. Treatments for infectious diseases are largely (some might argue exclusively) pharmaceuticals.
We don’t object when the Vet School has a course titled “Vaccines and New Therapies” (VMB 674). We could argue that vaccine therapies should be the domain of the college of pharmacy but that wouldn’t be helpful or necessary. The origin of the course is made obvious by the VMB prefix.

Proposal

Proposal ID: 107964
Type: New Course
Effective Term: Spring 2020
Justification:
A graduate level course is being establish to pair with a professional level course with similar content. The professional level course is already taught at a level appropriate for graduate coursework. Outcomes for the graduate level course are similar, but students will be assessed and evaluated independent from professional students.
Comments: None

Linda Bruslind - Senior Instructor II / Microbiology (Science)
I agree with the concerns expressed about the very general nature of the title, since this is certainly a topic that we might want to offer to students in our department. We wouldn't want to be prevented from offering an undergrad/grad slash course on this topic (or something similar) in the future, due to the presence of this class.

please approve

Responded Yes
Norman Hord - School Head / Public Hlth/HumanSci Adm
I support this course but, like other reviewers, have concern that the emphasis, and title, should be on pharmacologic approaches to this topic. This would allay the concerns about the overly general course title.
(Responded on May 11, 2020)
Responded No
Sheryl Thorburn - AssocDean-Acad&FacultyAffairs / Public Hlth/HumanSci Adm
I support this proposal with the caveat that the course title is general and doesn't include anything to indicate that this course is a pharmacy course. There are other colleges on campus that teach courses on infectious diseases. One option would be to change the title to reflect the specific focus of this course. I would not want this general course title to prevent other colleges from offering graduate courses in infectious diseases and treatments.
