5. Dean's Report: 1) for the 3rd time, Graduate enrollment reached
about 1800 students. SSCH's declined approximately 7% however.
2) Dr. Stevenson and Dr. Hanson are contacting programs about upcoming
reviews. It will be a busy spring. Programs are busy doing
their self-studies this fall. 3) New Program Proposals, per
ADHE guidelines, must now have an assessment plan attached or the proposal
will not leave the Provost's Office. 4) Dean Hanson has polled
the graduate programs about the option of setting electronic advising
flags for their students. Approximately half of the programs wanted
the flags. This information has been sent to the Registrar's
office so that flags will be set for those programs who wish it,
beginning with registration for spring 2002. Also, degree audit with
pre-requisites noted is in the process of being set-up. Jimmy
Greer is now working with Records and Registration in this capacity.
