College(s)Contact NameStatement Summary
College of Humanities and Social SciencesDeanna DannelsPsychology: I don't see a conflict with the proposed course and our PSY 792: Psychology of Families and Parenting. The content is complementary rather than redundant.

Public Administration: The PA 510 class is the one we are seeking to change (so that the new title would be PA Institutions and Values) so that is a bit less of a concern. Second, it might be more palatable to switch the ordering of the proposed course's title: YFCS 585: Family Policy & Professional Ethics changes the emphasis, right? That would seem to quash any confusion. And I am fine with--indeed, I applaud!--the program offering ethical education tailored for their professional context.
No instructional resources required.
