8. Review - Catalog Coordinator

Approved by Larry Bulling Program Technician 1 / Office of the Registrar, January 6, 2015 9:10am

Proposal

Proposal ID: 92347
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Submission Date: December 11, 2014 11:48am
Approval Date: January 6, 2015 9:10am
Effective Term: Spring 2015
Justification:
The purpose of this proposal is to correct the listing of two SUS courses that were never developed and are currently noted as under development in the Course Catalog: SUS 430 (Ecological Dimensions of Sustainability) and SUS 440 (Economic Dimensions of Sustainability). Faculty decided that there are established courses at OSU that satisfy the requirements of what these courses were going to be designed to do so there is no need to develop these two courses. The acceptable courses to meet both the ecological and economic dimensions of sustainability are listed clearly in this proposal.

We also cleared up errors in the amount of credits listed for each required "dimension." Also, we updated the list of elective courses to reflect courses that are currently available.
Comments: None
