Approval Process
See handout 
Discussion:
Jim Wright  As seen on the new course process, GE can be requested.  This may not be the correct action as it has been determined that a course must be active before it can be approved as a GE course.
 
GE may need a separate approval process. 
 
Training  on how a course goes to GE  Major revisions w/additional approvals
Need to review the GE charter before the next Curriculum meeting. Have the GE committee members at the next meeting. A popup that says course not active yet, you will need to come in the future to apply for GE.
