Explanation of how the course differs from similar GW courses
There is no comparable course that we are aware of. The course has substantive content on college student health and mental health problems but is also experiential. The University Counseling Center staff will be fully responsible for it and it may be a good option for some of our majors or minors interested in health education. CKS

What is going on here???? I thought this course already went through the entire approval cycle. I did not initiate any new changes recently except to ask that it be added to the spring 2016 schedule (So why was spring 2016 crossed out above?). Silvio Weisner won't be the instructor, we now know: Amber Cargill will be, so I wrote her in. Please, can we be done with this? Thanks, Carol
