The University Senate met in the Assembly Room of Lafferty Hall
March 10, 1941. Fresident Cooner nresided.

The minutes of February 10 were read and annroved.
On recommendation of the University Council, the Senate ape
tion for an organization to be known as the Students” Art C
«L ‘r
' r

petition had been submitted in accordance with the Senate

and carried the signatures of 69 eligible students.

In the absence of a formal report for the month, Chairmen R. H, Weaver
informed the Senate that the Curriculum Committee had given considera~
tion to the request for apprOVal of Hygiene 51a and 51b. He stated that
the Committee had voted not to annrove Hygiene 51a, but that on request
of the College and the Department, additional time had been granted for
submitting more information on this course. He added that action on this
course would be reported at a later meeting of the Senate.

Chairman R. H. Weaver made the following report on the work of the Curric—
ulum Committee since its establishment:

“The Curriculum Committee was established at the March, 1938, meet”
ing of the University Senate. The committee consists f the chairman,
elected by the Senate, and nine other members, aptointed by the chairman,
subject to the apDIOVal of the President of the University. There are
five members from the College of Arts and Sciences, including one from
the social sciences, including nsychology, one from the physical sciences,
and one from literature, philosophy and the arts, and one from each of
the other colleges.

The function of the committee, to quote the resolution which estabw
lished it, is 'to examine existing courses and to make recommendations
to the Senate as to the need for and desirability of these courses; to
recommend to the Senate the action to be taken by that body to eliminate
duplication of courses between denartments and between colleges; and to
examine all pronosed new courses or changes in courses and to recommend
to the Senate the action to be taken to prevent future duplication of
courses and unwise expansion of the curriculum.‘

 Minutes of .ne University Senate ~ March 16, 1941

spending antrox1mately 60 hours

in session; the l939e40 committee met 2% times, suending anoroximately

As the Various members of ‘ne committee have not been able to devote more . tf
time to the work of the committee, the function of examining the existing l
curriculum has been almost entirely nee filected. A list of live courses ‘.fi
was nnepared through coopera.tion with the various departments 3nd colleges rd:





of the University. AbboVePLlJ I1 many ce.ses a conscientious job was done, at;
but in others many dead and moribund courses were left in the list. A , ,
ct dy was msde of the courses dealing with statistics and a rearrangement Ht



f courses for a tria.l tweeyear neriod was agreed unon. Next year's com- , .
mittee will have to reconsider this question. The question of advertis~ -;fi
ing courses has also been investigated, but it annears tli.t no satisfac— _U~
tory solution of that nroblem has been reached. -H

7.1-4... .5.

The need for a thorough study of the University curriculum has bee
come more and more apparent to the committee. There apnears to be little
chance of making such a study unless the number of new courses to be con-
sidered by the committee be materially reduced or the members of the come

mittee be given some reduction in teaching load for a sufficient time to ‘ ;;g
make the study. In addition, the committee would need some secretarial “1%


Since the committee was established in March and membershin is for mf

a onemyear term, chairmen have been elected at the March meetings of the ) b
Senate and the new committees have taken over as soon as they could be 'g”t
organized. This has resulted in a great deal of waste effort and in de— (_fi
lay in the consideration of courses New committees have had to start "3:1
over on the consideration of courses to which the nrevious committee had 55"
given considerable time. We are recommending, therefore, that the time -‘til
of election of the chairman be changed to the regular May meeting of the .“[1


Senate and that the new committee t9 file office with the beginning of the
fall semester.

The committee has onerated under a set of self—imposed principles.
They are as follows:

1. Whenever the committee makes any recommendations to its Senate
concerning which the committee is divided, it is recognized that the
minority has the right to nresent a minority report.


2. Whenever the committee decides to make an unfavorable recommen- ' 1 d
dation to its Senate concerning Droposed new courses or changes in courses, ,p
or a recommendation involving the elimination of courses from the curricu- J t‘1
lum the dean of the college concern ed will be immediately notified of the '
recommendation to be made.

3. When a course is being considered about which the committee feels
there may be come doubt or conflicting interests, it will be the burpose
of the committee to consult members in other denartments who may be inter-
ested as well as the nerson prOposing or teaching the course.

mi ttee there Was a net increase of oo.4 credits in the regular curriculum “
of the University. During the term f the 193 ~40 committee there was a ,.
net increase of 161.3 credits. Actually, the increase to the teaching
lead was Drobably not as great as this figure would indicate, because


a,b,c, and d sections are included for a number of Seminar courses. Dur»

ing the term of the l940~4l committee, there has been a net increase of
5.7 credits.



ee hopes that the statistics for this year may be inter~
Dreted as meaning that we are sporoaching a 'balanced budget' as far as
course offerings are concerned. At least for the nresent it annears
that the addition of new courses should be balanced by the dronning off
of old courses. Perhaps a moratorium on new courses for long enough to
allow a reevaluation of our old offerings would be worth while.




During the three years u. the committee's existence. there has been
q net increase of 254.4 credits in the regular University offerings.

to the Senate‘s jurisdiction over 'Determination of curricula, authori23~ I

3. Conditional admissions to the freshman class. 5



In a few cases, where all factors seem to warrant such a nro— " l
cedure, epnlicants are given conditional admission to the freshman ha
class even though they do not meet completely the requirements Out—
lined above. The tyne cases are es follows:

a. The student who lacks either the unit of algebra or the

unit of nlene geometry, but otherwise presents a satisfactory ennli- ‘l

cation. Such a student is admitted nrovisionally, on the basis of ~l'

high school graduation and fifteen accentable units, and is given ‘

one year in which to make un the deficiency. He is not readmitted ‘

u at the beginning of the second year unless the deficiency has been ‘ I '
T” cleared. A nrovisionnl admission of this kind may be allowed when 1-”l
either the algebra or geometry unit is lacking, and in very excen~ ‘Wd

tional cases, when both are lacking. (Senate Rule) ’ 4 l


b. The student who nresents the basic units, but who Cannot
submit fifteen acceptable units, even though he has graduated from - fl
high school. A case of this kind is usually the result of an ex~ 'H
cess amount of work in the vocational or miscellaneous grOun. Where .1XV
all other factors are favorable, an annlication of this kind may be . '
accented with a deficiency of from one-half to one and one—half
units. Against this deficiency is charged from 2 to 6 credits of
college work ner unit, denending on the ouqlitv of work done by
the student in the University. (Council Internretation, Sentember 5
16, 1932, and Administrative Policy) "_:

c. The student who takes the examinations for entrance and
does not make a clear case for either admission or failure. If
other factors seem to warrant, such 9 student may be given a condi—
tional admission to the freshman class. In order to be readmitted,


the student must do satisfactory college work. (Administrative , ‘qfl

‘ Policy)

The minimum qualitative requirement for admission to the College
of Law is a 1,0 standing in all nrevious work. However, in accordance '-l
with a request of the College, apnlicants are not ordinarily accented
unless they can offer a standing of 1.3 or higher in all urevious

work. (Administrative Policy)


Graduatasof fully accredited institutions of higher learning are ad—
mitted to the Graduate School unon evidence of graduatiOn and an official 1,

sion does not obligate the University to accent all credit granted by the
undergraduate school. When full credit is not granted, the student is re~
quired to do more than the normal amount of work to complete requirements
for a graduate degree. (Administrative Policy)

Annlications from schools not fully accredited are individually eval~
uated. If all factors seem to warrant, the student may be admitted with

extra credit reouired, the exact amount denending unon his subseouent ‘5]

Students who ere candidates for d _rees in ther institutiors are, un~ H

der certain conditions, admitted to the Urmi Versity for a narticular term or .fi
semester as transients. Under sucn conditions, the student does not submit , lh
his credentials and establish himself as a regular student. 1115 me .i he -h
oifers a letter from his institution showing that he is a regular student it
in good standing. If his record is ooor the letter must include the Dermis~ it
sion of his iiistitution to take the desired work at the Univer sitv of Ken~ ‘:.h
tucky. (Administrative Policy) ‘ fl

Eote: The transient student is, in a. sense, a special, lh

but he is c19531fied differently because he Can- i

not in all onses mxet the minimum age requirement i

for admission as a snecinl student." it

Prof W;

ssor Latimer read to the Senate the following sts tement resnecting
in the rules governing this body: l
"The present Senete rules were nrinted in 1936. Some of the important it
rules were not included and of course there have been many changes and new 'L
rules since that time. It will probably be necessary to renrint the Rules
. in the near future and this will require a new comnilation. Some of the in
a old rules will need changing to corresnond to the amendments and additions I ..
' enacted by the Senate within the last five years and in some cases a revi~ - 4%
sion may he desire ble. i

This work will take a great deal of time and is too much work for one
committee. Therefore, I move the t the President be emnowered and rec nested
to select and annoint three committees to do this work and renort to the
Senate. ‘ Vt


The iirst committee having to do with the rules; now nrinted in Parts
IV, V, VI and VII of the 1936 edition of the Senate rules. Thes 3 rules are
concerned with the work of the student after admission and include 'Reouire”
ments for Graduation', 'Grades and Honors', 'Eules Relating to Studies' and , ‘
'Exeminations‘. .,l

The second committee to be concerned with the rules now nrinted as U

Sections VIII to XIV of the 1936 rules. Ehese rules cover student activi—
ties and discinline and also include the rules anulicable to Dhysical educa-

. — . . . I
tion and military sc1ence.
