In order to be entered into the 2013-2014 Academic Catalog, proposals must receive senate approval by the end of the March 12th meeting. To provide sufficient time for review, the deadline for submitting all proposals to the appropriate senate committees is 11 January 2013.
To clarify: proposals need not be approved by January 11th. Instead, they simply need to be routed by that date to one of the four senate-level curriculum committees: Academic Requirements Committee (for LACC courses); Graduate Studies (for graduate programs/courses); Honors Committee (for Honors courses); or Curriculum Committee (for most other programs/courses).
Any proposal not approved by the faculty senate by March 12th will not make the 2013-2014 catalog. These deadlines were discussed and approved by the faculty senate in 2009.
