dards and Policies (C-USP) in re-sponse to the document. C-USPhas recommended that under-graduates take eight breadth re-quirement courses, despite thefact that that the SUES reportsuggested students take 11.The Senate discussed anamendment, which would returnto the original SUES recommen-dation for 11 breadth courses. Theamendment would require stu-dents to take courses that fit intothe seven “Ways of Thinking,Ways of Doing” categories firstcreated by the SUES report. Stu-dents would be required to taketwo courses in “Aesthetic and In-terpretive Inquiry,” two in “SocialInquiry,” two in “Scientific Analy-sis,” two in “Formal and Quantita-tive Reasoning” (with one in eachbranch), one course in “EngagingDifference,” one in “Moral andEthical Reasoning” and one in“Creative Expression.”C-USP, however, has recom-mended double course require-ments in only one of those cate-gories.“Requiring one course in eachcategory would be an invitation tosuperficiality,” said Susan Mc-Connell, SUES co-chair, as to whyher committee originally suggest-ed requiring two courses in somecategories, but not all. “For in-stance, it can be difficult for stu-dents to engage with science in just one course because there’s alanguage barrier. By requiringtwo courses, we create opportuni-ties for students to gain familiari-ty with the subject and then get indepth.”“The proposal does not in-crease the general educationblueprint or narrow the space forexploration,” McConnell added.Debra Satz, senior associatedean for the Humanities and Arts,expressed approval toward theamendment, but said she feels thatstudents should have more flexi-bility to take different courses.“I support a bigger footstepbecause I believe that studentsshould have a wider breadth,” shesaid.Satz added a friendly amend-ment to the proposal to split the“Formal and Quantitative Rea-soning” requirement into two dif-ferent categories, stating that thisdivision would add transparency.Faculty senators who spokeappeared split on which proposalto move forward. Many cited theneed for students to have aca-demic freedom as a reason tokeep C-USP’s recommendationof fewer requirements. Otherssupported the amendment be-cause it would result in increasedexposure to breadth and depart-ment, which Biology ProfessorPatricia Jones said is similar to therequirements at Stanford’s peerinstitutions.The Senate ended up voting infavor of the amendment, and thehigher number of breadth re-quirements.The senators then moved on toa discussion of the “governance”section of the amendment. Somefaculty members said they feltthat the Governing Board wasbeing given less freedom — andmore constraints — in an amend-ment.Most of the senators were infavor of the current wording inthe C-USP proposal, which theysaid would allow for more flexi-bility and freedom for the boardin making decisions.Senior Associate Vice Provostof Undergraduate Education andBiology Professor Martha Cyertdrew the Senate’s attention to asection of the amendment, whichshe said tasked the board with the job of figuring out how to deter-mine whether the courses it hasdesignated as satisfying a catego-ry “are in fact attaining the major-ity of the learning goals associat-ed with that category.”“Those assessment processesare a really, really important, hugetask,” Cyert said. “Assigning thatto the board is not realistic. Noneof us would agree to being on theboard. It is not practical to givethe board that task as well.”In response, Economics Pro-fessor Caroline Hoxby said shedid not think the task would betoo difficult for the board.“If it walks like a duck andtalks like a duck, it’s a duck,”Hoxby said. “We wouldn’t have tostudy every chemistry class be-fore deciding which requirementit fulfills. The board would focuson a small set of courses that weremuch less clear [about theirbreadth distribution].”The Senate voted to opposethe amendment to Board Gover-nance, preferring the original C-USP wording.The Senate will discuss recom-mendations about the Program inWriting and Rhetoric (PWR) andthe annual budget report at itsnext meeting on May 31.
