Curriculum Review Process Policies and Form

Step 1

Review the most current required procedures and forms.

Step 2

In addition to completing the required curriculum change form—as located within the previous Faculty Senate website—all College Of Education and Human Development curriculum proposals must address the following items:

Proposed additions, deletions, and changes shall be submitted on the request to college curriculum committee form. On page 2 of the proposal form, a brief response to each question is required. In completing the form, refer to the following:

  1. Attach necessary old and new catalog copy to each proposal.
  2. Proposals for new courses must include a course syllabus or outline.
  3. If the same change is made to more than one course, submit one proposal that clearly states how the change will affect each course. Attach a matrix or outline of how the change relates to the course.
  4. If several changes are to be made to one course, submit one proposal that clearly states how all changes will affect the course. Attach a comparative matrix showing the original layout of the course against the proposed changes.
  5. If several changes are to be made to one program major or minor, submit one proposal that clearly states how all changes will affect the major or minor. Attach a comparative matrix showing the original layout of the major or minor against the proposed changes, and a budget outline that has been previously approved by the dean.
  6. If the same change is made to more than one program major or minor, submit a proposal for each major or minor that clearly states how the change will affect each. To each proposal, attach a matrix of the original layout of the major or minor against the proposed change, and a budget that has been previously approved by the dean.
  7. If the proposal is likely to require  Undergraduate Studies Council or Graduate Studies Council review or is a new or merged program, etc., attach a supplementary document containing the following:
    1. A complete statement of purpose or rationale, describing all issues that precipitated the creation of the proposal.
    2. A complete statement of expected goals, outcomes and evaluations.
    3. A matrix of the original layout of the major or minor against the proposed change.
    4. Letters of support from university parties that will be affected by the proposal.

Step 3

Please submit completed proposals to Carolyn Seaver, Office of the Dean, 2301 Sangren Hall. In advance of the submission deadline, all are encouraged to check with the chair of the committee, Carol Weideman, if you have any questions regarding the proposal paperwork.

Proposals will not be placed on a meeting agenda until all proposal paperwork is complete.
