University Curriculum Committee

Membership: 23 members

Description: The committee receives proposed changes in curriculum and makes final recommendations to the President of the University. The Committee may initiate studies of academic and/or curricular concern and make resultant recommendations to the President of the University. It may deliberate and make recommendations relative to curricular and/or academic proposals submitted to it through usual academic offices or by faculty organizations. In addition, the Committee advises on matters which the President may submit to the Committee for its consideration. The General Education Standing Committee shall report to the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs or the University Curriculum Committee. When either the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs or the University Curriculum Committee desires review of CORE courses or CORE issues, this standing committee will be available for this purpose.  This committee may convene during the first week of the fall semester and, on rare occasions, may convene electronically during the summer.

(Approver: Provost/SVPAA)
