Team By-Laws

(i) Composition

The Undergraduate Curriculum Team consists of one faculty member representing each academic unit, a representative(s) from the Office of Academic and Curriculum Support, ACS, (ex officio) and the General Education Director (ex officio).

(ii) Responsibilities and Duties

The members of the UCT serve as a unified university entity to review and coordinate among the academic programs, schools, and colleges so as to preserve and maintain the integrity of curriculum and course offerings, review and resolve curricular issues, assure public accountability to the university, report to the Faculty Senate, and collaborate with the General Education Council, Graduate Affairs Team, and Graduate Curriculum Team as appropriate. When the college representative to the Undergraduate Curriculum Team is not qualified or chooses not to present changes to the curriculum from other disciplines in the college they represent, the team may invite representatives from that discipline to present the changes and answer questions from the curriculum team. 

The Undergraduate Curriculum Team is responsible for developing policies and procedures associated with the creation, maintenance and revision of undergraduate curriculum, academic policies and standards, and accreditation issues. The Undergraduate Curriculum Team will review proposed changes in, additions to, and deletions from the undergraduate curriculum, course descriptions and catalog information, and will forward recommendations to the Office of Academic Affairs.
