|*FS 06-131/Ex.||PROGRAM COURSE PROPOSAL - DOCTORATE IN EDUCATION|
The Faculty Senate recommends to the president the approval of the Doctorate in Education, as outlined in Attachment A, and is contingent upon a 50% increase in the time-base for all teaching appointments (i.e., 3 WTU's become 4.5 WTU's, 1 WTU becomes 1.5 WTU's, etc.).
Note: the underscored phrase above (following "Attachment A") was a proposed amendment, which was not approved.
In addition, the Senate recommends that the WTUs associated with the Ed.D. are 1.5 vs. 1.0.
The Senate recommends an annual Ed.D. budget be prepared at the end of the academic year and presented to the Senate in the fall semester (using a detailed line item budget showing actual and projected budgets - similar to the format required by WASC).
Carried (paper ballot: Ayes: 38; nays: 4; abstentions: 3).
