Curriculum Committee


This committee reviews curricular matters, especially individual course proposals and major and minor requirements, including the implementation of policies concerning all-college requirements. The committee may also consider curriculum questions brought before it by the faculty, students, and administration, and general recommendations concerning immediate and long-range curricular matters. Questions and requests should be forwarded to the chair.

All proposals--including FYE course proposals--must be submitted via Curriculog. They will be reviewed by the associate dean of the faculty first before they will be forwarded to the Curriculum Committee.

Deadlines are September 15 for the spring term and December 15 for the fall term. The deadline for FYE course proposals is January 8.
