UCC will consider new and revised course proposals with the following criteria in mind, in decreasing order of importance. Department representatives submitting proposals should be prepared to answer questions concerning these issues, and present/discuss evidence of fulfilling these requirements.
While UCC recognizes that a signature on the LX form certifies the Dean's willingness to support a course or program, there are course design issues that can significantly impact the quality of a course offering and the experience for the students. Therefore, submitters may be asked to discuss the following:
Questions involving course and/or program revisions will generally be limited to those sections of the LX form that are marked for revision. However, presenters should give consideration to how the proposed changes may impact the other aspects of the course or program that have not been selected for revision, and be prepared to address questions from UCC members as necessary.
Very minor changes may be handled through the Consent Agenda, which is presented to UCC members for expedited approval. However, any UCC member may pull any item from the consent agenda and request a full first reading for the next meeting. Generally only minor changes will be considered as possibilities for a consent agenda item.
