SUMMARY:
1. Please respond to Liaisons Donegon, Dugger, Field, Gibbons, and Grunder commnets. This can either be done on a Word Document and attached to this proposal in the Documents Tab or you may add your comments to the Comments box found in the Justification Tab.

2. Please change the Effective Term. We are currently in Winter 2017 term. No changes can be made once Winter Priority Registration begins. Spring Priority Registration begins Feb 24 and I am not sure this proposal will arrive in the Registrar's Office in time. My recommendation is to make the changes Effective Summer 2017.

Requirements block:
1. Please list course titles as they appear in the Online Catalog: SUS 401, SUS 410, SUS 499, SOIL 499, PS 331.
2. Please list all cross listed designators associated with the course. Please list the cross listings like you did in the section "Social Science/Humanities": FW 485 (2 places), WSE 415, PHL 443.
3. Please list the cross listings like you did in the section "Social Science/Humanities": AEC 352 (2 places), BI 435, FES 445, FES 455, FES 477.
4. MCB 435 does not exist. This is only a 5XX course.
5. This course does not have a cross listing and the cross listed course was dropped Fall 2016: SOIL 335.
6. BI 349 was dropped Fall 2015. Please remove from your list.
7. Please add the course credit hours: AEC 253.
8. Please add the BCC symbol "*" to the title: PS 331.

Thank you for your time.

Please remove FW488 from the curriculum. It's a capstone course for FW seniors; as such it would not be appropriate for Sustainability students.

I have no problems with this.

BRR students would be more likely to want to participate if the could double-count. Can they count their research for their major fr the Practicum? Furthermore, can they count their option elective courses toward the Sustainability course choices of electives?

Looks good. I see you have ME 312 on the list... is there any particular reason you chose that class? Only Pro-School ME or NE students can get in, and they must have the prerequisite (ME 311).

This looks fine in principle, but the numbering on many of the GEO courses is incorrect. GEO 300 is now GEOG 300 and some of the other courses have different prefix and different number.

I will send a list with changes to Kate.
