AS-02-34BS Physics Polymer Option PhysicsNew program2002, FallMature, objections filed
02/21/2002
 no02/18/2002
Proposal Summary:The need exists for a program that will prepare physics students for graduate study and/or careers in polymer physics and related areas; both industry and graduate schools nationwide are calling for students with a background in physics and skills in polymer science and polymer engineering. Currently, however, students wishing to gain experience in polymer science and polymer engineering at the undergraduate level at the University of Akron are unable to do so in a systematic way. This is because the Departments of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering offer no undergraduate degrees, and physics students are uncertain as to which courses they might take in these departments. A BS Polymer option in our physics undergraduate program will lay the foundation for students with a physics background to pursue careers in the area of Polymer Science and/or Polymer Engineering. The structure of the program would be that students take the required courses for the BS physics degree and select three electives at the 300- and 400-level in Polymer Science and/or Polymer Engineering. Senior representatives from the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering have endorsed the program.

 
AS-02-35Theoretical and Computational Methods in Physics PhysicsCourse changes only2002, FallCollege status: not approved
01/14/2002
 no
Proposal Summary:We wish to rename our course, 3650:350 - "Modeling and Simulation", to "Theoretical and Computational Methods in Physics" and increase the corresponding number of credit hours from 3 to 4. The course will include material covered previously, but will also cover additional material on theoretical physics, hence the need for the extra credit hour. This course is envisaged to be a "bridge course" between the existing cornerstone 300-level course in our department (namely 3650:301 - "Elementary Modern Physics") and the required 400-level courses, which students normally take after this. At present the level of difficulty in our 400-level courses are commensurate with physics departments nationwide, but the level of understanding required of certain concepts in theoretical physics is higher than that of students who have completed our current “Modeling and Simulation” course. The proposed changes to the course will fill the gap and better prepare our students for our required 400-level courses. Our curriculum will also be more comprehensive and streamlined as a result.

The "Japanese Conversation and Composition" class currently offered as a special topic will be divided into four classes, i.e., conversation, writing, reading, and advanced grammar.

AS-02-79Classical Civilization Major CSAAProgram changes2002, FallProposal Withdrawn
10/29/2002
 
Proposal Summary:The proposed major streamlines offerings in an interdisciplinary package which strengthens enrollments and makes economical use of faculty time. It emphasizesthe strengths of UA in contrast to a more traditional language-based program at KSU.

As an interdisciplinary major the 100- and 200-level courses provided a foundation in the multiple methodologies and the breadth that involves courses from other departments. Depth is provided in the required 21 hours of 300-400 level courses in Archaeology, Classical Studies, History, Latin, and Philosophy. The college requirement for 47 credits in 300-level or above courses will encourage students to take additional courses from the nine upper division courses noted under electives.


7100:100 Art History I provides an introduction to the methodology of art history and covers ancient art.


3230:150 Cultural Anthropology provides the foundation for a cross-cultural perspective and provides a theoretical foundation for advanced archaeological courses.


3200:220 Introduction to the Ancient World surveys the cultural achievements of the ancient world and essential methodology.


3200:230 Sports and Society in Ancient Greece and Rome provides a first encounter with cross-cultural analysis.


3200:289 Mythology of Ancient Greece provides students with the fundamental "language" of ancient literature and thought.


3600:211 History of Ancient Philosophy provides essential background to the development of Greek philosophy before Aristotle.

AS-02-88Revisions to Required Curriculum of the MA in Urban Studies PAUSProgram changes2002, FallFinal Approval Granted
03/08/2002
 02/18/2002
Proposal Summary:The hallmark of the MA in Urban Studies is that offers the flexibility of a classical "liberal studies" curriculum, yet also offers an in-depth examination of the urban setting. We amended the curriculum last year to strengthen the specialization portion of the curriculum. We are now focused on the required courses. We wish to accomplish two things with this change; to add flexibility and to create options that reflect the changing career interests of students. The changes are as follows:
1. Drop 3980:641 Urban Economic Growth and Development and 3980:643 Public Policy
2. Require the student to select two courses from the following list
3980:618 Citizen Participation
3980:621 Urban Social and Service Systems
3980:641 Urban Economic Growth and Development
3980:650 Comparative Urban Systems
 
AS-02-89Revision of the MPA Required Curriculum PAUSProgram changes2002, FallFinal Approval Granted
03/08/2002
 no02/18/2002
Proposal Summary:For many years the MPA curriculum has included a "chinese menu" of alternatives for four required courses; 3980:601 Advanced Research Methods, 3980:640 Fiscal Analysis, 3980:642 Public Budgeting and 3980:643 Introduction to Public Policy. With the changes in the required curriculum in 1999 and 2000 and with the significant expansion of courses in the specializations and the resulting flexibility it offers, this "chinese menu" no longer serves a purpose. Furthermore, this more straight-forward approach to the required curriculum will be more acceptable to our accreditation body. The students lose little in terms of flexibility and career focus in the curriculum and we simplify the organization and scheduling of classes.

Therefore we propose to delete from the Graduate Bulletin all the footnotes, which is the only place where these course alternatives are listed.

Additionally, student choice of courses in building a curriculum may not always be motivated by career path choice as it is by less appropriate reasons, e.g. scheduling convenience. Consequently, structuring of the financial services curriculum must balance the need for variation with the need to effectively influence proper course selection.

Proposal Summary:Prerequisites: 4600:625 Analysis of Mechanical Components or permission by instructor.

Failure Analysis of Mechanical Systems is concerned with analytical techniques that can be used to predict failure of structural and mechanical systems that undergo yielding, buckling, fracture and fatigue under static and dynamic loading. This course is essential for engineers who will develop "real" mechanisms and structures. Students obtain practical experience in modeling real complex systems in the end-of-term project. Very early in the course, students will identify a topic of interest for their project. The area of interest could be associated with a graduate thesis or project. Although technical report writing and oral presentations are not taught in this course, students are expected to document and present their project in a professional manner. References to various sources on how to present technical material will be handed out during class. In addition, a critical literature review pertaining to the student's area of interest will be assigned prior to the project. It is expected that student will also learn from this literature review.

Proposal Summary:The College of Nursing wishes to add an option to which an individual with a baccalaureate degree in a field other than nursing can achieve a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.

This flexible approach to achieving a baccalaureate degree in nursing uses existing courses and prerequisites to fit the needs of a non-nurse with a Baccalaureate degree who is interested in nursing as a career. It is consistent with the mission statement of the university of Akron by attracting a higher quality and more diverse student body.

NU-02-23Post Masters Certificate in Nurse Anesthesia NursingNew program2002, Summer IIFinal Approval Granted
03/07/2003
 05/14/2002
Proposal Summary:Registered Nurses who already hold an MSN degree that are admitted to the Graduate Anesthesia Program are exempt only from the core MSN courses and must complete the rigorous 27-month didactic and clinical components of the Graduate Anesthesia Program. Upon completion of the program, these students receive neither a degree nor a certificate of program completion. There are no new courses involved with this proposal. This proposal simply divides the current sequence of existing, approved courses into two phases. Phase I comprises all of the current first year nurse anesthesia courses and will be considered prerequisites for Residency. Phase II will encompass the remainder of the existing nurse anesthesia courses and consist of the residency phase. This will provide a pathway by which post-MSN students would receive a certificate indicating their area of concentration and thus recognizing their achievement upon completion of the requirements for the program.
 
NU-02-24Graduate Degree Completion Program for the Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) NursingNew program2002, Summer IFinal Approval Granted
03/07/2003
 no05/14/2002
Proposal Summary:This proposal provides a pathway by which a practicing CRNA with a BSN degree can progress to a MSN degree. A practicing CRNA is someone who has previously graduated from an accredited anesthesia program and is currently certified/recertified as a registered nurse anesthetist. Because students in the MSN nurse anesthesia completion program have previously graduated from an accredited anesthesia program and are practicing CRNA’s, they are not required to take the anesthesia core courses that entry-level MSN students must take. Their previous education and experience as a practicing CRNA is recognized through bypass credit for the anesthesia core. In addition, practicing CRNAs must maintain certification by obtaining 40 hours of continuing education every two years, thus ensuring competence in current anesthesia practice. There are no new courses involved with this proposal. The MSN degree completion program includes only existing graduate courses in professionalism, inquiry, pharmacology and management. These core components provide the practicing CRNA with a unique opportunity to blend their current clinical skills with the advanced educational tools congruent with the master’s degree.

Proposal Summary:


As you know. . .

. . . our country has suffered tragic losses due to apparent terrorist
activities. These attacks have occurred in Washington, D.C. and New
York City, with an unconfirmed airline crash near Pittsburgh. Our
thoughts and prayers go out to all of the victims of these terrible
attacks and their loved ones.

The University of Akron is in communication with federal, state,
regional, and municipal authorities and, at this time, we urge the
university community to remain calm and to maintain the greatest degree
of normalcy possible in light of such human tragedy.

Nevertheless, we will close the campus for the remainder of today and
urge each of you to be with your families and friends who may need your
support and counsel.

Events of this magnitude will affect all of us enormously, as
individuals and as a community. We want to provide all the support that
we can to each member of our campus community during this difficult time
for our nation. Students in need of special assistance can call Student
Services at 7067, employees can call Human Resources at 6583 or 7090,
and faculty members with concerns about class offerings or other
academic concerns may call the Provost at 7017.

In the face of these terrible events, let us be with our families and
gather together.

Respectfully,

Luis Proenza

Proposal Summary:Students have numerous concerns in their lives: work responsibilities, family obligations, social commitments, and community involvement. We know from experience that many have difficulty in scheduling classes, or are not able to take a specific course during the desired semester. Distance education can accommodate many of the issues that may restrict someone from otherwise attending a traditional classroom and advancing their studies. Web-based instruction also presents an opportunity to serve a new market segment that will increase enrollment. Individuals that are not currently able to attend traditional classes for various reasons may very well start an educational program via the Web. As additional courses are offered on the Internet, there will be a built-in audience ready to enroll. There is no difference between the academic content of the traditional version of the courses and the web-based versions. Expected learning outcomes are the same for both web- and classroom-based courses. Various web technologies will be utilized. These include e-mail, discussion lists, threaded discussions, and automated testing procedures, to mention a few.
