Proposals Tabled:

2013-48 LALS Minor Table so that the chair can meet with proposer to discuss the following (but not limited to the following) we will reconsider the proposal during the January meeting. (White, Thomas)

1) Proposers need to provide a specific list of courses that will count for the 3 electives and a list of courses that will not count.  One that should be included is SPN339, which is primarily an LA course now.

2) Until the university has a structure for an interdisciplinary program, the LALS program will need some sort of formal structure for oversight.
