The minutes of the meeting of February 7 were corrected to reflect that a instructional development grant to the Department of Philosophy was also approved. With this correction, the minutes were approved as distributed.

An instructional grant proposal was approved for the Department of Fine Arts.

Consideration of the proposal for COMM 175: Introduction to Debate was deferred until the instructor could be present to provide additional information.

The request to change title/description/prerequisite on COMM 331 was ruled a new course proposal and the department will be asked to submit it in that form.

The committee discussed a template for description of committee procedures needed for the SACS materials. A draft will be circulated for final approval.

Dean Dietrich presented the committee information on grade distribution.
