Social Sciences Department - College Based Fees - Letter 2018-19

From:  Dr. Greg Bohr, CBF Committee Chair

To: Social Sciences Department Students and CBF Committee

Re: Update on CBF usage for 2018-19

 

Dear Students/Committee Members:

Over the course of the 2018-2019 academic year, the department used our allocation of CBF funds to reserve seats for ANG and SOC majors in high-demand courses, as well as to offer sections of courses that otherwise would not have been available. As in past years, we distributed these seats across our majors and between quarters as evenly as possible.

Overall, 1105 seats were reserved for our majors. The following table shows the distribution of these seats by course prefix, and by quarter:

  FALL 2018 WINTER 2019 SPRING 2019 TOTAL
ANT 169 74 69 312
GEOG 78 126 30 234
SOC 128 296 134 559
TOTAL 376 496 233 1105

The assistance of the CBF committee was invaluable in identifying which courses are particularly impacted, and therefore should have reserved seats. The course numbers in which seats were set aside over the 2018-19 year are:

PREFIX COURSE NUMBERS:
ANT (10) 201, 202, 250, 344, 345, 360, 402, 425, 455, 465
GEOG (8) 150, 250, 308, 318, 328, 333, 350, 370
SOC (15) 111, 218, 301, 305, 306, 309, 311, 315, 316, 323, 326, 354, 355, 402, 421 

In AY 2018-19 all of our department’s CBF allocation has been used for classes, as required by the college. 

Sincerely,

Ben Timms, 
Chair, Social Sciences Department
