Faculty Handbook

Procedure for Modification of a Dual Label Course in the Undergraduate or Graduate Curriculum

  1. This procedure is to be used when a CIP program number exists and/or additional equipment and/or staffing is not required. Departments must include an explanation and supporting data justifying how or why no new resources (i.e., staffing, course rotation, library resources, technology resources, and laboratory facilities) are needed.
  2. The originating department prepares and approves the change, addition, establishment, etc., and obtains the proper cover routing sheet from the Faculty Handbook. The proposal should include the course designation and number, title, description, prerequisite(s), level, outline, and any other information required by the Committee on Undergraduate Curriculum and Academic Standards or the Graduate Council. The department that shares the label must also formally approve the change, etc. before the proposal may be sent to the school curriculum committee. Departmental approval by both departments indicates that all other affected departments have been notified. See below for new update to this section in 2006-07*
  3. The dual label proposal with proper cover routing sheet is sent to the chairperson of the school curriculum committee, with the appropriate number of copies. If the school curriculum committee approves, the proposal is sent to the chairperson of the Committee on Undergraduate Curriculum and Academic Standards or the Graduate Council. The school curriculum committee is responsible for the complete contents of the proposal being sent to the Committee on Undergraduate Curriculum and Academic Standards or the Graduate Council. If the school curriculum committee disapproves, the proposal, with reasons, comments or recommendations, is sent back to the department chairpersons.
  4. The Committee on Undergraduate Curriculum and Academic Standards or the Graduate Council reviews the proposal. If approved, the proposal is sent for administrative review. If disapproved, the proposal, with reasons, comments or recommendations, is sent back to the chairperson of the school curriculum committee and the department chairpersons. The Committee on Undergraduate Curriculum and Academic Standards or the Graduate Council may consult with the departments and/or the school curriculum committee for clarification throughout the process.
  5. The chairperson of the Committee on Undergraduate Curriculum and Academic Standards, or the Graduate Council, the Department Chairperson(s) and the appropriate Dean are notified simultaneously of the administrative approval or disapproval with reasons, comments or recommendations.

    *Pending the electronic set-up in the 2006-07 academic year, the electronic format approved by the Senate R-06-02-03 and approved by the President 6/9/06 will be as follows:

    a.  Departmental approval of the proposed change(s).

    b.  Transmission of the proposal to the appropriate school review committee in electronic form.

    c.  Each school review committee chair will electronically post the proposals and notify all University department chairs that they should check the proposals. (the place where this should be posted and the manner should be determined by the deans and the appropriate technical staff.)

    d.  Department chairs will decide whether they think their departments are affected and if so, go to the complete proposal. When a department chair thinks the change has an effect on the department, she or he will provide input to the review committee before or during the approval process

    e.  After the approval by the school committee, the proposal proceeds to the next step of the process as before (CUCAS or Graduate Council) where departments who consider themselves affected may also provide input.
