Minutes of the University Faculty " May 8, 1942.

University of Kentucky
College of Arts & Sciences m

May 7. 1942


At its meeting on April 28, the Faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences
recommended the following:


Anthropology and ArchaeolOgy 107. Ethnology 2: the New World.
3 recitations a week. 2 quarter hours. A study of the origins and
migrations of the ethnological groups of the new world.


This is an expansion of Arch. & Anth. 105 and 106 into a third quar-
ter's work.


Psychology 126. Mental Hygiene. 3 quarter hours. A continuation (fil‘
of Psychology 124, Students are given the opportunity to apply to 2 ’
to concrete cases the principles and concepts developed in 124.
Prerequisites; Psychology 124 or Hygiene 120a. It will be noticed

that this is the same description found in the catalog under Hygiene

120b, except that the prerequisite has been added.

Report 2f Committee on Classification.



Since the quarter system not only requires students to register and
classify three times in the academic year, but also permits fewer
days in which to do the work, the following reCOmmendations are
made, and in so far as they involve all University students, it

is recommended to the University faCulty the adOption of these

(1) In so far as possible a preeclassification and pres
counselling program be adopted for all students. «“5.

(2) The preeclassification program should include as a minis 2
mum the following;

a. Students should be assigned to specific advisers
before the opening date of school. The students
should be required to see the adviser and with his
help make out a schedule of classes. &

b. The adviser should sign and keep the classification cards.

c. Before registration day the adviser should return
the classification cards to the Dean's office,
where they will be alphabetized and arranged accord” '
ing to classes (freshmen, sophomores, etc.) 6“

d. On classification day. each student will be exoected
to go to the Dean‘s booth, get his classification
cards, and take them to the Various departments for
assignment to particular sections.

All students should be classified according to some prc~
determined alphabetiCBl arrangement. In the past fresh~
men have registered alphabetically. but have not been re-
quired to resort for classification in any orderly way.

All changes in schedule, exceot those involving changes
in hours” should be approved by the student95 adviser.
This will require that the adviser keep a cony of the stu—
dent‘s schedule card.

Each student should consult his adviser before dropping a

It is suggested that, in so far as possible, all depart»
ments assign students to specific sections before classia
fication day. This can be accomplished if the Dean‘s ofe
fice turns the classification cards over to a particular
department for a limited time before classification day.
Such a orocedure will serve as an incentive for students
to see their advisers early in order to get into the sec"
tions of their choice, and will enable the advisers to
devote more attention to students.

It is further suggested that, in so far as possible, the
academic program be made out for the entire three quarters.
The publication of the schedule for the three quarters
will make this possible in many instanceso In these cases.
the adviser will nd2turn in the schedules but for one
quarter at a timeo

ty of the College of Arts and Sciences to the University FaCUlty,

reference was made to the c0urses to be offered as residence work at Pike~
ville and Harlan during the coming summer, and the issue was raised as to ,
whether it might not be desirable to allow a minimum amount of graduate credit
by extension. No action was taken on this matter, as it appeared desirable

to await the return of Dean Funkhouser before considering the question of
graduate credit by extension" It was pointed out that any courses could

be offered by extension in another community, but that graduete credit

could not be allowed under present rulesl

graduate students might receive credit. In the discussion of this matter, fig.

Dean Hill read to the Faculty a request from the Library that all
departments and agencies of the University that issue printed material
cooperate with the library staff in furnishing sufficient copies to allow thw;
to maintain their exchanges with other institutions;

form designed to discover what proportion of students now in attendance at
the University expect to be in summer SChOGlo The deans of the colleges €8fl‘
