BOARD OF TRUSTEES
Establishment of a Joint M.S. in Nursing Sciences/Master of Public Health, College of Nursing and the School of Public Health, Chicago
The Chicago Senate has approved a joint proposal from the College of Nursing and the School of Public Health to establish a joint program which will provide students concurrent formal study towards two Master's Degrees, the M.S. in Nursing Sciences with an area of specialization in Public Health Nursing and the Master of Public Health with a concentration in Community Health Sciences. Both the M.S. in Nursing Sciences and the Master of Public Health have long been approved by the Board of Trustees and the Illinois Board of Higher Education. Students must meet the admissions criteria of both programs and be admitted separately to each through separate applications. Similarly, students must meet the degree requirements of each program. The 54-58 hour program of study is made possible by virtue of the fact that a minimum of 11-13 semester hours of study in the same areas are already required in both public health nursing and the broader public health sciences. The joint nature of the program is to eliminate any overlap in course offerings. The purpose of the joint degree program is to prepare nurses to assume management leadership positions in nursing and public health.
Revision of the Advanced Certificate in Advanced Prosthodontics, College of Dentistry, Chicago
The Chicago Senate has approved revisions to the College of Dentistry's Advanced Certificate in Advanced Prosthodontics which reflect changes in the discipline and meet accreditation standards of the American Dental Association. Existing courses were revised, new courses developed, and the program extended to 36 months (formerly 24 months) to allow adequate time to complete the clinical, didactic, and research components. The objective of the advanced certificate program is to help highly motivated students with proven clinical and scholastic abilities achieve clinical excellence in prosthodontics through a clinical program leading to certification by the college and eligibility for examination by the American Board of Prosthodontics. This three-year revised program received temporary accreditation by the American Dental Association in May 1993.
Revocation of Doctoral Degree, Chicago
The Student Judiciary Committee of the Chicago Senate, after hearing a complaint of the Graduate College of the Chicago campus, has recommended that the doctoral degree of Muhammad Kazeminy be revoked. The Executive Committee of the Chicago Senate has affirmed that the proper procedures for bringing this matter forward appear to have been followed by the Student Judiciary Committee. The president of the University, on recommendation of the Senate Student Judiciary Committee and by authority of the Board of Trustees, therefore has revoked the doctoral degree of Muhammad Kazeminy.
