This committee shall have responsibility to review and approve curricula in three areas:
1. General Curriculum. The committee studies revisions and
changes to the general curriculum of the University and brings
recommendations to the Provost, deans and Faculty Senate.
Periodically, the committee reviews course offerings to identify
duplications and proliferation.
2. Academic Programs. The committee advises the Provost on the
curricula of programs offering academic credit.
3. School Curricula. The committee advises the Provost and deans
on curriculum matters within the schools that have University
level implications. Curriculum decisions of all schools are
submitted to the University Curriculum Committee for advisory
review of their consistency with University policy. In this
process, the unique responsibility of the faculties of each of the
schools and colleges for their individual curriculum policies and
programs is recognized.
