President's Report on Actions of the Senate Transfer of the Administration of the B.S. in Media Studies from the College of Communications to the Institute of Communications Research, College of Communications, Urbana
(35) The Urbana-Champaign Senate, on the recommendation of the faculty of the College of Communications, has approved a proposal for an internal transfer of the administration of the B.S. in Media Studies from the College of Communications to an academic unit within the College of Communications, the Institute of Communications Research. The B.S. in Media Studies was established in 1984 to enable undergraduate students to understand the full range of modern communications and information systems within a broad interdisciplinary perspective. Until now, the B.S. in Media Studies curriculum has been administered through the College of Communications Dean's Office by an intra-college advisory committee appointed annually by the dean. The faculty of the college believe it is now time to formalize the organizational structure of the B.S. in Media Studies by affiliating the program with an academic unit. Since most of the courses involved in the B.S. in Media Studies are taught by Institute of Communications Research faculty, it is logical that teaching roles and program affiliation are officially integrated. The internal transfer of this program involves no change in class size, teaching loads, or student-faculty ratios; neither does it require any additional staff or funds.
Revision of the Core Curriculum in Agriculture with a Major in Agronomy, College of Agriculture, Urbana
The Urbana-Champaign Senate, on the recommendation of the faculty of the College of Agriculture, has approved a proposal to revise the Core Curriculum in Agriculture with a Major in Agronomy. This revision eliminates the General Agronomy option within the Agronomy major, and adds an option in Agroecology to the three remaining options (Crops, Soils, and Crop Protection) within the Agronomy major. The General Agronomy option in the Agronomy major is being eliminated because of its significant overlap with the other options currently available in the major.
