How the committee works for you:

The College Curriculum Committee handles matters relating to recommendations for college level approval of undergraduate, graduate, and professional instructional programs. Specific duties include:

1. Consideration and recommendation for college-level approval of new courses and programs,
2. Review and recommendation for college level approval of course and program changes and terminations, and
3. Participation in accreditation or other academic review procedures when requested by a department or the dean.

Additional information regarding the College Curriculum Committee and the role of its members may be found in the PHHP Curriculum Committee Overview.
