- The Department Chair will submit a completed
Information Literacy ("I") and/or Global Awareness ("G")
checklist to the designated person(s) (see Senate Web
Page) from the IG subcommittee.
- The IG committee will, based upon the checklist,
decide if the course qualifies for the "I" or "G"
- The decision of the IG committee will be conveyed to
the chair of the department submitting the checklist. If
the course is approved this approved status will be
conveyed to the Provost office who will take the
necessary steps to have the designation permanently
attached to that course.
- Should a course not be given the requested status, an
appeal to AAC can be made by submitting a Course Change
Proposal form along with the I and/or G checklist. The
usual path for curricular actions for a course change

be attached to the New Course Proposal. The New Course
Proposal form will then follow the normal curricular
path, AAC to Senate to President, for approval.
