Campus Curriculum Committee Procedures

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 webe0354@umn.edu. 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.
