University Curriculum Committee

Function and Meeting Information: 
Receives and evaluates all curricular requests, including program and course changes, new degree program and course proposals. The committee comprises two faculty members per college, plus two Library representatives.


The only set UCC meeting is in January and February when courses being added or deleted by schools, departments or programs are reviewed. After that, the committee meets as needed. The time commitment depends on the number of proposals for new programs or degrees that are ready to be reviewed at any one time. The UCC works closely with the Director of Curriculum Services and responds to the timeline of curriculum proposals submitted by College Curriculum Committees. The members of the UCC are also required to serve on their respective college curriculum committees.
