MSC Disposition: Local Senates

Status Report: 

S&P Committee included a discussion about how to accomplish this in the Spring 2010 discipline hearing. However further discussions and development showed that the scope of this resolution was way too broad. So the committee developed a follow up resolution that narrowed the focus to developing equivalency criteria for associates degrees.
