Academic Policy
The committee formulated a set of Guidelines, Processes, and Procedures for proposing the addition of new courses to and for deleting existing courses from the Univeristy's Inventory of Courses and for modifying existing courses in the University's Inventory of Courses.  The committee undertook this task at the suggestion of Facutly Senator Mel Goldfinger. The purpose of the committee's effort is to formalize as policy that which has been practiced over many years. In addition, the polices are designed to assure that all faculty, new and "old", have access to university wide processes and procedures for creating and maintaining an academically strong curriculum as presented in the University's Inventory of Courses and to offer a common set of guidelines for all faculty to consult in accomplishing such.

The proposal is available as a web document and as a PDF as follows:

Guidelines, Processes, and Procedures For Proposing New and Deleting Existing Courses and Modifying Existing Courses
The committee scheduled its next meeting for Thursday, January 10.  Colleges submitting curriculum proposals for review by the committee need to submit the orginal and 18 copies NO LATER THAN 12:00 Noon, January 3.
