To provide sufficient time for review, the deadline for submitting all curriculum proposals to the appropriate Faculty Senate committees is February 13, 2018 (one week in advance of the February 20 meeting).
In order to be entered into the 2018-2019 Academic Catalog, proposals must receive Faculty Senate approval by the end of the March 13th meeting. Proposals that are approved during a February 20 curriculum meeting will either be 1) Directly approved by the Executive Committee or 2) Added to the February 27rd Faculty Senate agenda as New Business, and then will be voted on in Faculty Senate (as Old Business) at the March 13 Faculty Senate meeting. (See item 3.6 in the Faculty Senate Bylaws)
To clarify: proposals need not be approved by February 13th. Instead, they simply need to be routed by that date to one of the four Faculty Senate-level curriculum committees: Graduate Studies (for graduate programs/courses); General Education Committee (for D, LACC, Q or W designations); Honors Committee (for honors courses); or Curriculum Committee (for all other programs/courses).
Any proposal not approved by the Faculty Senate by March 13th will not make the 2018-2019 catalog.
To offer a new course in 2018-2019 that is approved past the March 13 deadline, and is not in the 2018-2019 catalog, you must submit temporary course paperwork (see the Curriculum Committee webpage). For a new course approved past the catalog deadline, you may submit a single temporary course application for the entire year by indicating your intention to offer the course multiple times during the academic year (fall 18 – summer 19) on the temporary course form.
The “approved by Faculty Senate at the March 13 meeting” time frame does not apply to new programing of any kind (program, minor, certificate). New programs require external approval (see the Curriculum Guidelines), which takes an additional three to six months to process.
