Undergraduate Curriculum Committee

The primary responsibility of the Committee is to review course (courses numbered 1000-4999), minor, certificate and program proposals and changes after Division approval to verify that the proposal or change does not duplicate, without sufficient justification, a similar course, minor, certificate, or program already existing on the campus. The Committee will elect a chair and secretary; there will be monthly meetings with a quorum (simple majority) needed for action. Membership will be for two-year terms with a maximum of two consecutive terms. The committee makeup will consist of a single representative from every campus unit that awards a bachelor’s degree, specifically from these units’ own curriculum committee. Advisors Forum, MSA, the University Registrar’s Office and any division which does not currently offer bachelors’ degrees will/may have an ex-officio representative.

The campus Undergraduate Curriculum Committee, with support from the Registrar’s Office, has developed a set of procedures by which to honor its charge from the Provost and Faculty Council. These forms and submission instructions are available on the Office of the University Registrar website.

A course syllabus should be attached.  Syllabus should contain the following:

  • Course description, including if applicable an Honors Philosophy and Goals Statement
  • Required texts and materials
  • Course policies (absenses, submitting late work, academic dishonesty statement)
  • Assignments; grading procedures, including grading scale; and separate Honors grading procedures and scale, if applicable
  • Sequence of topics by weeks or class session
  • ADA Statement
  • Prerequisite or corequisite course(s) required or recommended
  • Additional requirements to receive graduate level credit (required for cross-level courses only)
The committee reserves the right to limit its’ review to course proposals or edits available in the Course Inventory Management program at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled meeting time. Recurring meeting pattern is the third Friday of every month beginning at 1pm.
