Transcript The jewelry, metalsmithing, ceramics and scupture programs faced termination primarily because of the lack of space. But UH President Jamce Pickering put a halt to program eliminations that were based on space. As part of a university-wide reshaping effort, several programs were slated to be cut due to the lack of space and funding. The jewelry, metalsmithing, ceramics and sculpture programs faced termination primarily because of the lack of space. But UH President James Pickering put a halt to program eliminations that were based on space. The University Policy and Planning Council made final reshaping recommendations for Pickering final reshaping document. "No action will be taken until a campus- wide review of space is done," said George Magner, chair of the UPPC. An overall space analysis could take about one and a half years and cost $100,000, said Glenn Aumann, the senior vice president for Academic Affairs. "Any decision to phase out programs should be based on academic information," said Rosalie Maddocks, chair of the Undergraduate Council. It was recommended that the Human Development Laboratory now housed in the College of Technology be moved to another college. "(The lab school) is poorly served in the College of Technology," said George Reiter, president of the Faculty Senate. "The options are wide open for the movement of the lab school," Magner said. The UPPC voted to support Pickering's recommendation that physical education requirements be phased out. At the University of Texas-Austin, where PE courses were elec- tives, the department was extremely active, said one UPPC member. Reducing the four department in the College of Pharmacy to two was also recommended. The recommendation to move dance to the School of Theatre from the College of Education was approved. The new recommendations for Communication Disorders and the Speech and Hearing Clinic, which were phased out in Pickering's first reshaping draft, was to move them from the School of Communications to a more suitable college. "Communications Disorders need to be housed somewhere else other then the School of Communications," said Richard Murray, a political sci ence professor, who is opposed to phasing out programs because of lack of space. The UPPC recommended that the merger between the biochemistry and the biophysical departments be discussed further by faculty. And the foreign language merger, which was already being pursued, was supported by the UPPC. A review of the School of Communications was also supported. "There are controversies with the college, conflicts between deans and leadership problems that warrant a review," Magner said. -Kristine Fahrenholz Halting Programs Elimination Features 321
