Academic Affairs Committee

This is a bulletin from the Academic Affairs Committee
concerning proposed curriculum actions. Within the next 10
days, please forward any comments or concerns to the AAC
Chair, Helen Biblehimer, Elliott Hall 203,
The department of Education and Special Education has requested the following curricular change:
Action: Program Change: Remove Program from Moratorium: Exceptional Persons
Rationale for change:
Remove from moratorium the Exceptional Persons Degree and rename it Leadership for Children and Adults with Disabilities. This would provide students with a non- teaching option. Teaching is only one of a variety of positions individuals can obtain working with children and adults with disabilities.
New Degree and Program Title: Leadership for Children and Adults with Disabilities BS
List all changes:
Program Description for Catalog:
The department also offers a B.S. program in Leadership for Children and Adults with Disabilities designed for those interested in working with individuals with disabilities, not requiring teacher certification.
Career opportunities include management and advocacy in areas of human service providers. This degree would also allow the individual to pursue a graduate degree in related services for child and adults with disabilities.
To prepare individual for career opportunities advocating for and working directly with children and adults with disabilities (non-teaching).
To provide an undergraduate foundation for individuals wishing to pursue graduate work in related services for individuals with disabilities.
Impact on other programs:
None. Psychology, Sociology and Social Work did not believe the increase in enrollment would be problematic.
