Status update: Course alignments

For the past year, the Project Coastal Course Alignment Committee has been at work on two major tasks: 1) alignment of courses across all campuses, and 2) development of an Associate of Arts and Science (AAS) degree proposal for all campuses. An AAS proposal has been developed and is currently under review by Clif Ganyard, Project Coastal Director, and curriculum chairs on the branch campuses, and will ultimately move through a governance process.

Department chairs and associate deans have been reviewing and sorting courses in the following ways:

  • Courses that align in the Transfer Wizard but need course number or title adjustments, courses that have lectures/discussions/labs combined and may need to be split, or courses that do not match on the number of credits.
  • Courses that currently transfer to UW-Green Bay as electives and require decisions about how to offer the courses in the future.
  • Courses that are complicated (don’t align well) and need to be individually addressed.

Course decisions have been mostly completed and recommendations for course alignment are moving through the approval process. Questions about course alignment should be directed to UW-Green Bay department chairs and deans or curriculum chairs on the branch campuses.

Marketing and University Communication is overwhelmed with the response to the new four campus, one university model. Thank you for your eagerness to be brand ambassadors and for your requests for updated business cards, name badges and more. New templates for all of these materials are currently under development and will be available for order beginning in early October. Until then, please continue to use your existing business cards and name badges (this is the evolution not revolution part that comes with updating a logo).

Any business card requests received within the last 30 days have been placed on hold or processed using the old template (for those with pressing needs). If you have questions about the status of your particular order, please contact Tammy Papineau at papineat@uwgb.edu
