Submitting Proposals

Individuals should feel free to contact the Chair of the Curriculum Committee before submission to discuss the proposal or ask questions.

New Curriculum Proposals

  • Use the proposal submission system external website when submitting new proposals. A separate form must be submitted for each course / program addition, deletion, change, etc.
  • All proposals will be routed to the appropriate approvers, including Chairs and Deans of programs that are directly affected by the proposal, the Chair of the Curriculum Committee, and the Registrar. Significant revisions to a program will also be routed to the Provost. The Provost will determine if review and approval by APC is needed.
  • Proposals are due to the Chair of Curriculum on the 2nd Tuesday of the month to be considered for review by the committee that month.  The Curriculum Committee meets the third Tuesday of each month at 11:00 a.m. Please note that the April meeting is reserved only for items needing attention impacting the following fall semester.
  • If approved by the Curriculum Committee, the proposal will be made available to the full faculty for a vote at the next full faculty meeting. Incidental changes are passed by the Curriculum Committee and announced at full faculty meeting (no vote necessary).
  • A representative of the originating department may be present at the Curriculum Committee meeting and at faculty meeting when the proposal is presented to answer any questions.  (This is not necessary for incidental changes).
Please note that new programs, program eliminations, significant program revisions, and general education revisions must be reviewed by the Provost, and as appropriate, the Academic Planning Committee, and the General Education Committee prior to submission to the Curriculum Committee. Please review the faculty handbook for more detailed information.
