Proposal Title

Proposal Type
Request for Action (obtain approval)
Proposal Description/Rationale
Geography is the most recent pathway proposal. FIRC is looking for our college to review and endorse.
Does this proposal have campus-wide implications? If yes, how so? If not a campus-wide concern, you may want to refer this issue to your supervisor
To assist with retention and to attract students interested in Geography as a pathway.

Currently, MxCC has one Geography course: GEO101 Introduction to Geography. Students can take the other GEO courses and transfer them to MxCC to fulfill the Framework 30 part of the pathway. If there is interest, the other GEO courses as part of the Framework 30 could be developed. It is also possible that once the community colleges merge as one college, we would have access to the other GEO courses.

Does this proposal address a strategic priority of the college? If so, describe.
Goal 1: MxCC will continue to evolve its curriculum, strengthen student
supports and create an enriching and empowering campus experience.
Strategy 11.1: The academic curriculum of the college will be responsive to shifting
workforce demands and student interest and incorporate innovative and emerging
teaching methods and delivery modalities.
Does this proposal have budgetary implications? If so, describe projected costs and funding sources.
No
Is this proposal time sensitive? If so, describe the timeframe for implementation.
No
What governing body at MxCC do you feel would be most appropriate to address your interests?
