alexmf (Fri, 10 Feb 2017 21:34:50 GMT): Rollback: Admin rollback, ENGL Chair missed approval
candaceg (Tue, 14 Feb 2017 16:13:16 GMT): Rollback: please send gpac checklist and syllabus to
candaceg (Tue, 21 Feb 2017 16:24:55 GMT): Rollback: please use mental health statement, instead of ucc statement. syllabus template attached for further guidance.
candaceg (Thu, 02 Mar 2017 16:23:30 GMT): Rollback: See attached for GPAC Feedback. Please make changes and resubmit. Thanks!
candaceg (Thu, 06 Apr 2017 15:18:23 GMT): This course was approved by the GPAC Committee for CAH; however, the department wishes to remove the CAH gpac attribute.
echacko (Fri, 07 Apr 2017 12:24:31 GMT): I am not sure I understand this correctly. It looks like you wish to keep the Humanities GPAC but not any additional attributes. Please confirm that this is indeed the case. Retracting GPAC indicates that you want ALL gpac attributes removed, which is contrary to what I was told by the Chair of the English Department
echacko (Fri, 07 Apr 2017 12:26:31 GMT): Rollback: Marshall -are you asking that ALL GPAC attributes be removed from this course? That seems against the spirit of what you wanted when we discussed GPAC, especially when the GPAC review committee went through all the trouble of reviewing a course only to have the department say they don't wish for GPAC attributes. Please advise.
candaceg (Fri, 07 Apr 2017 13:57:41 GMT): Rollback: Hello Professor Alcorn, Dean Chacko would like to know if you truly wish to retract all of the gpac attributes for this course. Please advise.
echacko (Mon, 01 May 2017 16:28:15 GMT): I believe that when GPAC classification is retracted, the course cannot fulfill the Humanities requirements in the other schools as well.
echacko (Mon, 01 May 2017 19:53:29 GMT): I just checked - the course can keep the Humanities credit for ESIA, GWSB, SEAS and SPHHS
gharris (Fri, 12 May 2017 18:46:10 GMT): removed "I" from the course title as there is no "II," currently or in-process. This was a unilateral decision. I asked department what they planned to do, but have not heard back and courses won't be approved for the early bulletin if they're not done today.
