Spring 2021 Curriculum Committee Reviews

From the Chair of the College Senate Curriculum Committee
Attention, proposal authors. Please be sure to check the College Senate Curriculum Committee website for the CSCC Curriculum Handbook, proposal templates, curriculum review checklists, and other helpful resources before submitting curriculum proposals to KissFlow.

The Curriculum Committee will begin its spring 2021 review process in early February. The deadline for spring 2021 proposal submissions is Friday, April 9. Any proposal received after the deadline will be reviewed in fall 2021. The Curriculum Committee does not convene over the summer break.

If you have questions about a proposal you have submitted, please consult with your associate dean. Please e-mail Vincent Masci, assistant to the College Senate, with all other general questions. Proposals that have been approved pending revisions (APR) should be acted on immediately to expedite the process. All proposals must go through Kiss Flow. Please do not send proposals as e-mail attachments at any point in the process.

Proposal authors, please remember that any new or revised course proposal prefix must not be reused from previous years or current or historical use. Any proposal submitted with a previously used prefix will not be processed for review by the Curriculum Committee and will delay the reviewing process. A full list of courses, current and historical, is available; please contact Vincent Masci, assistant to the College Senate Office, to request a copy.

Authors, please use newly formatted curriculum templates and required naming conventions for your proposal documents. Updated templates and naming conventions for all curricular submissions are available on the Curriculum Committee website. Old templates will not be accepted.

Please ensure that course proposals with the same three-letter course prefix and different course numbers have unique titles regardless of the graduate or undergraduate level. For example, CSC 100 Introduction to the Curriculum Process and CSC 600 Introduction to the Curriculum Process would not be permissible; one of the titles must be changed to distinguish it from the other. All courses must have unique titles, and all documents must match the information being entered in Kiss Flow.
