Move to approve: Mary Pat Hager/Chris Doyle. In favor: All.
Sue Vial presented a proposal for new admissions requirements for the Graphic/Information Design Degree program. These new requirements are designed to limit the numbers of new students entering the program, as there are presently only four faculty to manage a program that presently has 400 students enrolled. Discussion centered around clarifications to the proposal, after which Gene Baten moved to accept. Several seconds. Approve: All.
Text of approved Admissions Requirements for BA in Graphic/Information Design:
“Acceptance into the University and participation in the Pre Graphic/Information Design program does not guarantee acceptance into the Graphic/Information design major.
Acceptance in the GID major is competitive and is limited by the number of students who can be accommodated. A student must receive a score of 85 or better on the comprehensive assessment administered in DES 122 (Introduction to Graphic/Information Design) to be considered for admission. DES 122 may be repeated only with the permission of the Department Chair.
These criteria will apply to students admitted to the University in Spring 2004 or later and students who change their major to Pre GID in Spring 2004 or later.”
MEETING ADJOURNED: 3:50 p.m.
