To provide sufficient time for review, the deadline for submitting all curriculum proposals to the appropriate Faculty Senate committees is February 12, 2019 (one week in advance of the February 19 committee meeting).
In order to be entered into the 2019-2020 Academic Catalog, proposals must receive Faculty Senate approval by the end of the March 12 meeting. Proposals that are approved during a February 19 curriculum meeting will either be 1) Directly approved by the Executive Committee or 2) Added to the February 26 Faculty Senate agenda as New Business, and then will be voted on in Faculty Senate (as Old Business) at the March 12 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 the General Education program); Honors Committee (for honors courses); or Curriculum Committee (for all other programs/courses).
Any proposal not approved by the Faculty Senate by March 12 will not make the 2019-2020 catalog.
To offer a new course in 2019-2020 that is approved past the March 12 deadline, and is not in the 2019-2020 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 19 – summer 20) on the temporary course form.
The “approved by Faculty Senate at the March 12 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.
