Deadline to Register/Application Deadline: 
Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 12:00pm

WHAT: Convening Faculty to Consider the Development of C-ID descriptors and Areas of Emphasis Transfer Model Curriculum in Global Studies/International Relations and Diversity Studies

WHY: These meetings are “come one, come all” to encourage wide participation and perspectives. Travel costs will not be reimbursed, but a light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Later, faculty will be appointed by their respective state senate to serve on the Faculty Discipline Review Group that will prepare draft documents for statewide vetting. 

WHO: We need CCC faculty from the disciplines below, or related disciplines that might be a component of one of the proposed areas of emphasis, and CSU faculty from disciplines that might be able to accept one of these areas of emphasis as lower division major preparation, to join in a discussion of the proposed areas of emphasis (and associated descriptors). In addition, we need articulation officers to assist each group.
