Curriculum Revision and Policy Change Procedure
Academic Departments recommend course and/or program revisions and policy changes to the College Senate. Proposals are first sent to the Office of the Dean of the College for an administrative review of costs, staffing and congruence with current programs and for the impact of policy changes. Following administrative review, the proposals are sent to the appropriate College Senate subcommittee (the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee for undergraduate proposals, the Graduate Curriculum Committee for graduate proposals and the Policy Committee for college-wide policy changes). Upon subcommittee approval, the proposals are forwarded to the full College Senate for separate readings: first reading and vote and second reading and final vote. Accepted changes are then forwarded to the President of the College for final approval and implementation.
