  1. AR 2 (Credit from a Two-Year Institution):

In response to Noah Buckley’s request from the ARC meeting on Jan. 25, 2017 to append “regionally” to the word “accredited” throughout (we (the ARC) approved this request at the meeting). This change is not a policy change, but meant for clarification and transparency.  The main concern is that different institutions have different outcomes and requirements and if only “nationally accredited”, transfer courses may not abide to our (regionally accredited) standards. OSU currently does not accept

non-regionally accredited transfer coursework and this is unclear in the AR. Dave Wing is to present this to the Faculty Senate at the next meeting on April 13, 2017.

  1. AR15 (Academic Dishonesty/Misconduct): See previous meeting notes for history (mainly starting with the notes from Jan. 25, 2017). After discussions with the Executive Committee, it seems, in the current draft of the new AR, there needs to be more of a distinction between procedure and policy - The AR should reflect the policy, whereas the procedure is more on the Student Conduct side of things (ie, reflected on the Dishonesty/Misconduct Reporting Form). We reviewed comments from Faculty Senate (in response to a survey following the Faculty Senate meeting from Feb. 9, 2017) and current proposed draft. We reworded the current AR (currently online) to more generally reflect the proposed procedures.
