I. PURPOSE OF PROCEDURE
The intent is to make explicit and generally understood the means whereby course changes
accomplished. The rationale is as follows:
- The procedures for course changes should be such as to facilitate curricular modification
to meet the needs of a rapidly changing body of knowledge.
- Course content and relevance are best evaluated by the academic departments
originating a course change.
- A course may be evaluated after it has been taught.
II. TYPES OF CHANGES
Course additions, deletions, and revisions referred to here are those which customarily
been reviewed by the University Curriculum Committee. They exclude minor changes in catalog
copy which are accomplished by departments directly. Also excluded are changes in degree
