Professional Curriculum Committee

Appointment:  The President or the President’s designee shall appoint six (6) voting members, preferably from professional degree-granting colleges or programs within the University. The Senate shall elect six (6) voting members from the faculty at large. Student Government shall select one (1) non-voting member. (13 members)

Chair:  The non-voting chair shall be appointed by the President or the President’s designee. A co-chair who shall have the right to vote shall be elected by and from the Committee Senate representatives.


Committee shall consider all requests for changes in professional curricula, and for the addition of new professional courses of instruction in any of the colleges, divisions, and schools of the University, except the Graduate School. The Committee shall endeavor to eliminate unnecessary proliferation of courses and duplication of subject matter among courses. Ordinarily, the Committee’s decisions on proposals to add courses to the curriculum or to delete courses from the curriculum shall be final, but the department that is offering the course or proposing to offer it, may appeal the Committee’s decision to the Senate. Such an appeal shall be addressed to the Committee, which shall either reverse its earlier decision or ask the Steering Committee to schedule Senate consideration of the appeal. The Committee’s decision on proposals to add, delete, or make changes in programs of instruction leading to professional degrees shall not be a final decision, but shall be submitted to the Senate for final action. When the Committee begins to consider items requiring Senate approval, the Committee’s co-chair shall inform the Chair of the Academic Policy Council.
