Graduate Academic Affairs Committee--24 October 2000

Present: K. Broikou, J. Bushnell (chair), M. Katter, R. McEwen, P. Pacheco, E. Putman, S. Salmon, N. Schiavetti.

Chair Bushnell called the meeting to order at 4 p.m. The committee members introduced themselves.

J. Bushnell introduced the one agenda item, a proposal from the Communicative Disorders and Sciences Department to revise the M.A. in Speech Pathology by making CDSc 533, Clinical Instrumentation in Speech
Disorders, a required course rather than one of the elective disorder courses. This would modify the program so that students would have to complete seven disorder courses from a list of nine, rather than eight disorder courses selected from a list of four language disorders courses and six speech disorders courses.

In providing information on the proposed change, N. Schiavetti called attention to Appendix A, a copy of which is appended to the minutes. CDSc 533 has been on the list of speech disorder courses from which each student must complete at least two of their eight disorder courses. The department would like to make CDSc 533 a required course for several reasons: feedback from students and alumni who see a need for more work
with technology in a clinical setting, faculty goals for the M.A. program, and ASHA's (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association) position on the place of technology in graduate curricula. CDSc 533 is taught twice each summer and will fit well in every student's schedule.

K. Broikou asked whether students need two language disorder courses for certification and if so, whether the revised program would fulfill the requirement. N. Schiavetti replied that this is still a requirement, and
the program is designed in such a way that it would be impossible for a student not to fulfill this requirement.

R. McEwen spoke in favor of the proposal, and suggested that Appendix A be clarified by changing item 6 in the list of proposed course requirements to read "Seven disorder courses from this list" rather than "Seven
disorder courses." N. Schiavetti agreed to this friendly amendment.

N. Schiavetti moved for approval of the program change, and the motion was seconded. With no further discussion, the motion passed unanimously.

The meeting adjourned at 4:10 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Judy Bushnell
