Summary of the process:
A curriculum item, new course, new program, change in program, change in course, originates with the faculty and is reviewed by the Department Curriculum Committee and, following this approval, submitted to the Divisional Dean for review and inclusion on the agenda for the appropriate committee, Undergraduate Curriculum, General Education, or Graduate Studies. After review and approval by the Undergraduate Curriculum, General Education, or Graduate Studies committee the item is sent by the Curriculum Coordinator to the Executive Committee of the Faculty Senate for placement on the agenda for the Faculty Senate meeting. Following review and approval by the Faculty Senate the item is placed by the Curriculum Coordinator on the appropriate Chancellor's or University Report. Ultimately, the item becomes a change or addition to the undergraduate or graduate catalog.
