Governance Information

2022-2023

School of Engineering Governance Document

Curriculum Committee

The role of the School of Engineering Curriculum Committee (CC) is defined in the School of Engineering Governance document.  It is charged with making recommendations concerning curricular issues related to improving the quality of the academic mission of the School. The Committee is responsible for reviewing recommendations from Departmental Curriculum Committees and other sources concerning new programs, nature of degrees, program structure, new or revised course proposals, prerequisites, or other issues deemed appropriate.

The CC is composed of eight members; five voting faculty members representing each department in the School of Engineering, two non-voting students, and the assistant dean serving as the dean’s ex officio representative without vote.

The CC meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month.  If the 4th Wednesday falls on a holiday/vacation day, the CC will meet in the 2nd Wed that month.  Departmental requests must be submitted to the CC Chair one week in advance of the meeting for consideration.
