Vote to approve: 5/5

16-15 BIOL Changes

When Shane Gold came on board he taught BIOL 112 which was the introductory course but there were inconsistencies in teaching and there was redundancy with what was taught in BIOL 112 and BIOL 265. They would like to reorganize it and essentially BIOL 112 becomes BIOL 113 (new course) and BIOL 265 becomes BIOL 112.

MRS is becoming 1 form from 4 so that students know the route they want to take and allowing for some flexibility.

Vote to approve: 5/5
