The Faculty Senate discussed changes to course evaluations and also approved a template for a new Joint Majors Program at its meeting last Thursday.
This summer, the three books for the 2013 Three Books reading program not only arrived at the mailbox of every incoming freshman, but were also featured on OpenEdX, an online open course platform which allows students to discuss the books before they arrive on campus.
One of the most notable features of student responses contributed to the creation of a new team-taught, three-quarter-long course that is expected to provide students with a historical narrative of English literature since the middle ages. It is the biggest requirement change to the major.
Nicholas Jenkins has been appointed the new director of the Program in Writing and Rhetoric (PWR), succeeding 10-year director Andrea Lunsford.
