What is the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee?
The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee is charged with making recommendations concerning curricular issues, including new course and departmental and program proposals, related to the quality of the academic mission of the School of Business. The Committee is responsible for reviewing for rigor, quality, and compliance with Academic Affairs and School of Business requirements, recommendations from the submitting Departments concerning new programs, program structure, new or revised course proposals, or other issues.
Who serves on the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee?
The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee consists of one faculty selected from within each Department of the School of Business. The Chair of the committee is elected by the Committee faculty members for a three-year term in the spring semester to serve the following academic years. A faculty member may not chair the committee his/her first year of membership.
