Curriculum Committees

Undergraduate Curriculum Committee Members

The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UCC) engages in the development, review, and revision of academic policies pertaining to undergraduates in the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) as well as the undergraduate general education curriculum for CAS, including making final determinations on courses proposed for that curriculum. The UCC also reviews proposals for new CAS undergraduate programs, substantial modifications to existing programs, and program terminations. Minor revisions, such as course changes, are the purview of the academic department or program. The UCC reports to the Educational Policy Committee (EPC).

Voting members of the Committee include full-time faculty representatives from each CAS department; non-voting members include a CAS associate dean and the dean of the College. UCC representatives are appointed by department chairs. The dean appoints a Committee chair for a one-year term, renewable.
