Curriculum Standards


The faculty of each College has primarily responsibility for the content, quality, and effectiveness of college curricula and exercises jurisdiction over all matters pertaining to the curricula. The faculty prescribes the curriculum, determines academic standards, and teaches and examines curriculum content accordingly. The faculty determines requirements for admission, promotion, graduation and dismissal of students, recommends candidates for degrees and certificates, and formulates and implements rules and regulations for overall governance of degree programs. New degree programs and significant changes to the curricula of existing degree programs must first be approved by a curriculum committee charged by the College Dean and comprising faculty members with appropriate expertise. New programs or program modifications that require approval from an external regulatory body must be reviewed by the Education Advisory Committee, and are subject to approval by Deans’ Council, the Senior Leadership Council, and the Board of Trustees.
