          7. Booking Rule Inclusion - School of Pharmacy (see Attachment #6).


          The Council discussed at some length the proposed course change to PHAD 493 which would limit registration in this course to P3 and P4 students. The effect of this course prerequisite would be to prevent business students with a minor in pharmacy administration from being able to take the course. Dr. McCaffrey indicated that the School of Pharmacy had plans to continue to allow business students currently pursuing this minor to take the course over the next two years. There was some expression of concern about the elimination of the pharmacy administration minor in business, although Dr. McCaffrey said that the School of Business had been consulted about this change. After further discussion and on a motion by Dr. McCaffrey and a second by Dr. O’Haver, the Council voted to approve the course change, six in favor with one abstention.                    


          8. Adjournment. The meeting adjourned at 1:45 p.m.



All items approved by the Council of Academic Administrators on October 9, 2006.


APPROVED by Chancellor Khayat on November 13, 2006.
