  5. Items From Members

    1. Tom McGinnis – Discussion re AS, AES, AA degrees

    2. Anne Brennan – There needs to be a consistent set of courses across all City Colleges of Chicago schools OR ease up on calling Ongoing Review courses.  Which would be a better use of time?  It will take more than a couple of review seasons to get all the the courses through the process

    3. Ashley – GECC Humanities & Fine Arts – nothing in our Policies & Procedures Manual says the requirement for 3 HFA Courses have to be 3 different codes. Therefore, this needs to be in policies to be enforced.
