Prepare a Curriculum Proposal

Curriculum Modification – A Guide for Faculty

This guide describes the college’s procedures for curriculum modification. Each department or program is responsible for continually reviewing and refining the curriculum and courses it offers and for initiating proposals for new curricula and courses. The college recognizes active participation in this process as part of the professional responsibility of every faculty member.
