Obsolete Desire2Learn records to be purged
The UW System began using the learning management system, Desire2Learn, in fall 2003. Since its deployment all D2L course content and student records have been retained. Last year the UW System formed a work group to develop a policy for digital instructional record retention. More information about the policy is available online.
A process now is in place to remove obsolete D2L course content and student contributions. D2L courses offered in any term prior to fall 2005 have been identified as candidates for removal. Desire2Learn courses for the following terms will be removed completely and permanently as of May 26, 2009:
summer 2004, fall 2004, winterim 2005, spring 2005 and summer 2005.
Instructors are asked to review their D2L courses for the terms listed above for any course information they wish to retain. Information about saving D2L course content is available on the D2L Cleanup Web site. For more information or assistance, contact Roxie Muldoon, LTS, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 836-2700.
A list of all currently available job openings and additional information about each position, including application procedures, may be found on the Academic Affairs employment opportunities Web site.

Major: Philosophy, Liberal Arts (Code 400-200)
From: Page 152 of the 2008-09 University Catalogue
To: Capstone: All philosophy majors shall complete a capstone experience, comprising three components: a capstone essay, a colloquium presentation and a reflection paper, usually during the senior year. The capstone essay component of this requirement will be fulfilled by the satisfactory completion of a research project, usually in the seminar course. The student and faculty supervisor together will determine what steps are necessary to bring the capstone essay to successful completion. The presentation component will be fulfilled by presenting the completed work at a colloquium open to the university community and public. The reflection component will be fulfilled by writing a short paper in which the student analyzes and reflects on his or her learning experiences as a philosophy major in light of the baccalaureate goals.
