5. Beginning this year, all departmental Program Reviews will be submitted to the Curriculum Committee. The chair will be responsible for determining at the end of each academic year which programs will be up for review the following year. The committee will interview the department chair and relevant faculty once their particular program review is completed. Members will give careful attention to the self study and the evaluator's report and ask appropriate questions regarding the self-study contents and the recommendations made by the evaluator. The chair will then meet with the vice president to discuss whether the committee feels all recommendations are appropriate. Departments will be given 16 months to implement the recommendations and will be asked to report back to the Curriculum Committee at the end of that period.
The Committee did not receive any Program Reviews this year.
6. Develop and conduct a workshop for all faculty on preparing a proposal for the curriculum committee. Committee members should urge anyone in their departments who has never prepared a proposal to attend this workshop. Review the required forms.

8. Develop and sponsor a faculty forum on the value of the College Book Project. Where are we with this project? Where are we going? Is there a way to create more of a learning community using the book? Is this a project worth continuing? What have been our outcomes? Is there a better way of selecting the book? Evaluate the success of the fall semester of the College Book Project by conducting another survey of students and faculty involved in the initiative. Contact Richard Perniciaro for advice in formulating questions and ask him to administer the survey and provide a report of findings. The committee should review this report and make recommendations for any changes to the book project that the survey results may prompt. Make recommendation to the vice president for any changes for the spring. Convene the College Book Committee during the fall semester to discuss their progress in the various sections using the required reading. Meet by March 2005 with all faculty interested in participating in 2005-2006, to choose a new book.
