COMMENTS:

1. (Yes Vote) "It seems that this is a rubber stamp process. That is my concern. Somehow there has to be a more collaborative process."

2. (Vote to Abstain) "Will send comments later."

3. (No Vote) "Objections - Statistics req., Foreign Lang. Req., Minor Req. (too rigid)"

4. (Yes Vote) "Please be advised to create a structure that will make Lincoln University's students competent for the future."

5. (Yes Vote) "Foreign Languages - 8 credits, Free Electives - 0-12 credits as needed."

6. (Yes Vote) "Need to define criteria for each category of the structure as defined. Need to have flexibility in the categories to accommodate the difference of various disciplines. There also needs to be definition as to how courses are dove tailed so that the course, not core and major, should support the emphasis of the major. Internships/cooperatives need to be included into the pedagogy of the course - hands on versus concept."

7. (No Vote) "The core is too large. Major emphasis is too large. Major emphasis, we already do this - this requirement of a minor emphasis is punitive. Cooperative education - this is an excellent idea. Free electives are much too low. We need to give each student an opportunity to experiment."

8. (Yes Vote) Concerns: Difference between BA and BS, Teacher Ed. Requirements, i.e. student teaching, Free electives not really being free, number of hours for internship.
