1.   With the exception of the Citizenship/Diversity checklist, each checklist was brought to the floor for a vote. In some cases friendly amendments were entertained for minor wording and/or structure changes. Nine of the ten checklists were unanimously approved.

2.   Discussion continued on the Process document. There were a number of constructive suggestions for improving the Process document and the Chair took responsibility for making those changes.  No vote was taken.

3.   Discussion focused on the feedback that Dr. Yanarella had received with respect to the Citizenship/Diversity checklist.  Committee members advised Dr. Yanarella that although his changes may have improved the original template wording, we were beholden to the original wording and needed to reflect that in the checklist. Dr. Yanarella agreed to make the required changes.

4.   Time did not permit a formal discussion of naming the new program.
