Minutes: Minutes of the December 12th meeting were reviewed and approved.

Standing Reports: n/a

Current Agenda Items:

Pre-Law Accelerated Program
Manolakas and Ostberg provided a thorough overview of the initiative. The eventual goal will be to channel students interested in law school through three years of undergraduate work and three years of law school. Eventually up to 60 new students may enroll. The program will provide distinctive 1-unit courses and co-curricular activities.

Goals of the Program:
1. Increase undergrate enrollment & attract Honor Students
2. Provide personalized learning experiences
3. Strengthen ties between Stockton and Sacramento campuses
4. Develop key relationships between students and Pacific alumni
5. Build stronger connections with Stockton's legal community

There are other schools that have 3+3 schools, but they are under enrolled. This program will help rank us and compete with other schools that students look at to apply to. This program is not as rigid as Pre-Pharm. The program may not be as successful as Pre-Pharm, but if they can get six new students, it would cover the expenses to start up and maintain this program.
