This is being submitted as a WID class. A course proposal has been forwarded to Randi Kristensen, Director of WID, for review.

A. Feldman (1/19/17): Notified that the WID course is PSC2476W, not this course.
echacko (Mon, 08 Feb 2016 21:25:16 GMT): Rollback: We no longer have GCRs in Columbian College, so please "un-check" the boxes for Foreign Cultures, Social and Behavioral Sciences etc.
echacko (Sun, 28 Feb 2016 19:37:05 GMT): Rollback: If this is being submitted as a WID course, it would need to be PSC 2476W: The Arab-Israeli Conflict. It first has to be approved by the WID Director or Gil Huerta on behalf of the WID Director before it is sent to me.
echacko (Tue, 22 Mar 2016 21:30:32 GMT): Rollback: It still does not have the WID approval, which needs to be in CourseLeaf. The course should be PSC 2476W, if you want it as a WID course and it has to be approved by the WID director or her assistant before I can approve. I will ask Tamara Wilson in the Academic Editor's office if she can put in the WID Director in the Workflow chain before I approve.
alexmf (Thu, 12 Jan 2017 19:36:18 GMT): Rollback: Rolled back to allow addition of WID Director to workflow
ghuerta (Thu, 12 Jan 2017 19:44:13 GMT): Rollback: A "W" needs to be applied to the Course Code in order for this course to post to the schedule as a WID. Evgeny Finkel confirmed on 12/31/16 that he would communicate this moving forward. WID will no longer allow a non-WID version of this course to count for WID credit. It must be on the schedule as PSC 2476W.
alexmf (Thu, 19 Jan 2017 14:49:21 GMT): Rollback: Changing workflow
candaceg (Sun, 19 Feb 2017 00:46:53 GMT): Rollback: please use mental health statement instead of the ucc statement. template attached for further guidance.
candaceg (Wed, 15 Mar 2017 18:56:51 GMT): Rollback: Please update the syllabus for this course to include average amount of time spent outside of class and the mental health and safety and security statements. Syllabus template provided for further guidance.
echacko (Mon, 17 Jul 2017 14:32:02 GMT): Rollback: I'm not sure whether you want this to be a WID course or not. If it is to be a WID course, please see earlier comments. The WID Director or his assistant should be in the work flow. If it is not a WID course, please state that it is a regular course (not WID) and I will approve.
