Submitting a new undergraduate course proposal for review by the CCC
- Every new course proposal must be submitted in ECAS. As of March 31, 2013, all new undergraduate course proposals pause at the Provost level queue for review by the CCC.
- All new course proposals must now include information in the Strategic Objectives and Consultation section of ECAS.
- All course proposals must include the requested information about Student Learning Outcomes in the relevant ECAS section.
- In addition to ECAS submission, each new undergraduate course proposal must also provide the following supplemental information:
- Copy of proposed student-ready syllabus in PDF or Word document
- Evidence of consultation, as appropriate (e.g., copies of emails)
- Any other supporting materials
- Information on the syllabus and consultation requirements can be found in the related Best Practices FAQs.
- All supplemental materials should be sent directly via email to Rachel Rodrigue at email@example.com. Proposals will not be reviewed by the CCC until all relevant materials have been received.
CCC review process for new course proposals
- New course proposals that have entered the Provost level queue in ECAS and provided the necessary supplemental materials will be reviewed weekly. The CCC will typically make a recommendation for each proposal within one week. Course proposer(s) will be notified via email of the recommendation.
- New course proposals that have been approved by the CCC on behalf of the Provost will be approved immediately at the Provost level in ECAS.
Submitting a curricular issue for discussion to the CCC
- Issues should be submitted in writing (via email or mail) to the appropriate vice provost: Robert McMaster for undergraduate requests and Scott Lanyon for graduate requests. Requests should outline the nature of the issue and why it is being brought to the CCC for consideration.
- An issue may be submitted to the CCC by the Senate Committee on Educational Policy (SCEP) or by a collegiate dean.
