What is the Graduate Curriculum Committee?

The Committee meets monthly on the second Wednesday from 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. Proposals should be submitted to the Committee Chair, via email. The Interim Dean ( and MBA Director ( should be copied on all submissions to the Graduate Curriculum Committee.
