Approval of a Minor Change to the BS in Sustainable Manufacturing

Executive Memorandum 13-069

October 24, 2013

From: Paul J. Zingg, President
Subject: Approval of a Minor Change to the BS in Sustainable Manufacturing

Upon the recommendation of the Provost, I approve a minor change to the BS in Sustainable Manufacturing. This change removes the selection of PHIL 129 or RELS 247 from the Managing for Sustainability Minor Requirement. Before the change to the General Education program in 2012, the Sustainable Manufacturing students were able to count either of these courses toward their upper-division General Education requirements, but with the move of these courses from upper-division to lower-division within General Education, this selection no longer benefits the students. This change reduces the number of units for the major from 93 to 90. This change will be effective Fall 2014.
