2 Activities of the CBS Executive Committee Call for external reviewers for EXB and NPB majors waived this year. Two program reviews upcoming next year, PLB and MGG. Needed names for external reviewers, developed with Department and separately, with Dean’s Office + FEC. WASC accreditation effort this year Two interrelated committees with some discussion in FEC – Teaching Workgroup and Shared Governance of Majors. More on these later. New budget model, presentations both in CBS and in campus meetings New model for financing graduate education and dispersing graduate tuition Step-Plus Program, passed last week by the Academic Senate. We had a presentation by Dean Hildreth about his vision for the future of CBS. More from Dean Hildreth later in this meeting.

3 Activities of the CBS Executive Committee Dean sought faculty input through FEC on expenditures for additional money coming from increased student enrollments in CBS Attended annual budget meeting with Dean and Provost. Discussed role of the FEC in CBS affairs. Asked Dean to meet with us once a quarter in the future, he agreed.

5 Committee on Undergraduate Curriculum and Educational Policy Members: Jeanette Natzle (Chair, MCB); JoAnne Engebrecht (MCB); Anne Britt (PLB); Su-Ju Lin (MMG); Sebastian Schreiber (EVE); Jochen Ditterich (NPB); Dave Furlow (BIS major; Fall); Lesilee Rose (BIS major; Winter-Spring); Susan Keen, Assoc. Dean (CBS; ex officio); Mary Aften (CBS, staff support) CUCEP met three times (and carried out some business via consultation) to consider requests for course changes, curriculum changes and educational policy issues. Course changes: CUCEP approved changes in MCB 110V (to MCB 110Y), MIC 10, BIS 105, MCB 121, BIS 101; new courses NPB 163, EVE 13; cancellation of EVE 134, EXB 113. Requested changes in EXB 126 were tabled pending consultation with College Engineering regarding cross-listing issues. Curriculum changes: Change in name of Genetics major to Genetics and Genomics. Maintenance changes/updating of Evolution, Ecology and Biodiversity (EEB) B.A, B.S. and minor. Educational Policy discussions: Preparation of Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) and Assessment Plans for each major in support of WASC accreditation review. Assessment of PLO’s and assessment of GE learning outcomes will be part of the cycle of campus- wide program review going forward. On the horizon, the Registrar’s office will develop a mechanism to enforce course prerequisites at enrollment. A call will go out to confirm whether currently listed prerequisites should be retained as required courses in the new system or changed to “recommended courses”.

9 Shared Governance of majors instructors from several departments contribute to the core courses and administration of the major takes advantage of faculty outside the department that focus their research on the topic of the major -- Biological Sciences, Genetics and Genomics, Human Biology?

10 To ensure continuity of instruction of shared majors Standing Shared Major committee (e.g., vice chairs + instructors) Home department still needed Assigning of instructors/TA, lab budgets, classrooms, awards etc. Curriculum development/updating BASC staff already advises majors

11 Impediments or Incentives? Financial considerations – how $ is allocated may foster competition between departments for majors Teaching assignments in revised Teaching Formula
