Transcript Council on Education Carolyn DePew The creation of a separate department of communication disorders, the approval of the medical withdrawal procedures, and the refining of the process for the resolution of grading errors were some of the accomplishments of the Undergraduate Council in its Wednesday meeting. "Everything that has to do with undergraduate education at the University of Houston comes through the Undergraduate Council," said staff associate Dr. Brian McKinney. The communications disorders faculty asked the Undergraduate Council to designate their program as a department separate from the School of Communication. The Academic Operations and Standards Committee looked into it and advised the council in their report. According to the committee report, the communication disorders major's redesignation as a separate department is logical from an academic perspective because the communication disorders major and the School of Communication curricula have evolved in separate directions. There is little integration between the major and the department now. Dr. Robert Musberger, Associate Professor of Communications, told that committee that he knew of no faculty in the School of Communication who opposed creating a separate department for communication disorders. He added that there were some financial concerns involving the division of funding should the new department be created, but he is optimistic that they would be resolved successfully. After the presentation by the AOS committee, the Undergraduate Council voted unanimously to create the new department. It is to be housed under the College of Humanities, Fine Arts, and Education. A new building for the new department, located adjacent to Parking Lot 9, is in the works. The next concern brought up in the AOS committee report was the review of the medical withdrawal procedures. Although the current medical withdrawal policy was recommended by the committee to be continued without alteration, some wires were crossed while discussing the finer points of the system. There is no time limit to apply for a medical withdrawal, even after the final grades have been posted. A student must go to the office for medical withdrawals (located within the Provost's office) and applies. Instead of chasing down the professors themselves, the office Richard Kasschau, Jon Lorance and the other members of the council begin their meeting. They meet every other Wednesday to discuss undergraduate education. Photo by Patrick Bernard Sullivan 111 January
