Motion Introduced by: Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee, Arnold Maltz, Chair
Date of First Reading: March 25, 2013
Date of Second Reading: April 22, 2013
Title of Motion: Request from the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts–for the reorganization of an academic unit- Merger of the School of Theatre and Film and the School of Dance - into the School of Film, Dance and Theatre
Action Requested: The Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee recommends University Senate approval of a proposal submitted by the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts – for the
reorganization of an academic unit – Merger of the School of Theatre and Film and the School of Dance – into the School of Film, Dance and Theatre
Rationale: The purpose is to establish a combined school: the School of Film, Dance and Theatre.
This reorganization (disestablishment/reestablishment) should have little or no effect on the other schools (Art; Arts, Media and Engineering; The Design School; Music) within the Herberger Institute. All current curricular, outreach, and research programs will remain constant for the 2013-2014 academic year, with proposed growth resulting from cooperative programs to begin in fall 2014.
