Call for Nominations and Election: Common Core Course Review Committee

Dear Colleagues:

The University Provost has asked all CUNY campus faculty governance bodies to participate in the selection of members to serve on the Common Core Course Review Committee.  The CCCRC reviews all courses submitted for inclusion in the CUNY Common Core.    There are three review subcommittees:

  1. Subcommittee One: “English Composition,” “Creative Expression,” and “Individual and Society.”
  2. Subcommittee Two: “Mathematical and Quantitative Reasoning,” “Life and Physical Sciences,” and “Scientific World.”
  3. Subcommittee Three: “World Cultures and Global Issues” and “U.S. Experience in its Diversity”

Each college will have the opportunity to have a representative on each committee chosen through college governance.  For more information regarding this change in selection policy, see the letter from Interim Chancellor Kelly, February 2014, http://www1.cuny.edu/mu/academic-news/2014/02/13/a-message-from-the-interim-chancellor-regarding-pathways-review/)

Each representative will serve a two-year term beginning immediately and extending until the end of the 2015-16 academic year.  The expected duties are “to review courses via the CUNYfirst course review system (training will be provided) and to communicate with their committees by email, phone, and in person (varying by committee) to discuss and vote on courses.  Members will receive one course release to be used sometime during their committee service of two years.”

Our College Council will conduct nominations and election of representative for the three positions at our next general meeting on September 30 at 12:45-2:00pm in the Atrium Amphitheater.  Nominees will need to meet the following criteria:

  • Each faculty member must be a full-time, tenured at Associate rank or higher, and
  • Have experience teaching common core courses in the categories they hope to represent.

No academic discipline or department shall be represented on more than one committee per two year term at any time. Candidates are not required to be current members of College Council. However, the must be nominated at the September 30 meeting by a current Council representative and they must be present to accept nomination.  If there are multiple candidates for each position, the candidate with the plurality will serve as the representative and runners-up will serve as alternates.
