Curriculum and Catalog Management

The University recognizes that the faculty of each department and program have primary responsibility for the department and/or program curricula, and that faculty has a responsibility to maintain standards of academic excellence. However, the University also has an obligation to operate as a singular entity to fulfill its institutional and historical mission. Operation as a single entity requires coordination among departments, schools, and colleges. The University Academic Standards Committees: General Education, Undergraduate Curriculum, and Graduate Curriculum, are charged with such coordination, and at the same time with preserving the integrity of the individual academic programs.

The Academic Standards Committees make pertinent recommendations on all curricular matters including the approval of new courses and programs, approval of changes in existing courses and programs and deletion of courses and programs. The committees may also make recommendations on academic policies and procedures related to curricular planning and procedures, academic regulations, academic support services, and instructional development and evaluation. The General Education Committee has responsibility for curricular matters pertaining to the undergraduate general education core curriculum; the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee has responsibility for curricular matters pertaining solely to undergraduate education, and the Graduate Curriculum Committee has responsibility for curricular matters pertaining solely to graduate education. Curricular matters that pertain to both undergraduate and graduate education require review by both the undergraduate and graduate curriculum committees.

Beginning in the 2018-2019 academic year, changes to both curricula and academic policy will be administered through the Curriculog™ electronic curriculum management system. This system will provide more effective management of curricular and catalog changes. All curricular changes not submitted prior to September 10, 2018, should be submitted using the Curriculog system. The legacy forms will remain available for your information to aid in the preparation of the documents for submission. Questions regarding the curricular process and/or the academic catalog should be directed to B-CU Curriculum and Catalog Management using bcucurriculum@cookman.edu.

Membership of all committees is constructed to provide representation from all academic units impacted by curricular changes reviewed by that committee.
