This is just a pro forma return to check that the Budget pages were prepared by the Arts and Science Business Center. The BFP group currently (1 January) requires this and the ASBC knows how to do it. Use of this service will greatly accelerate the approval of your proposal

James Coakley (Graduate Council Chair) February 12, 2013 11:59am
Since the proposal does not directly impact graduate programs, the Graduate Council supports the proposal. However, the Council asks that those involved continue to be thoughtful in their coordination with the BPP department and to assure the reorganization does not negatively impact the MCB graduate program

Associate registrar will assign new codes to the new units.
I'm not sure Banner and the online catalog can accommodate this new structure of a college over a school over three departments.
The catalog may require programming time and expense to display this new structure.

Comments:
This proposal aims to create a School of Life Sciences (SLS) within the College of Science by integrating the Departments of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Microbiology, and Zoology, and the Biology Program and General Science Major into a single coordinated organization.

The goals in creating of the School are to:

(1) Lead, promote and grow the instructional and research success of the basic life sciences at OSU
(2) Coordinate planning for faculty hires, research clusters, and research facilities
(3) Coordinate and integrate curriculum in support of undergraduate and graduate degrees in the life sciences
(4) Coordinate advising for majors in the life sciences to provide easy access to pre-health advising, degree advising, and seamless transitions to faculty advisors.

We do not foresee a branding problem because the branding of all of the majors will occur through the School and not necessarily through the departments. The Zoology Department and the current Biology Program have been operating out of a single office for the last 2 years and this administrative structure has been working well. The transition to a large unit, therefore, has been underway essentially throughout this time.
