University Curriculum Committee
This committee shall be responsible to the Faculty Conference for reviewing proposed changes in the undergraduate curriculum to ensure that the changes are consistent with university policy and that they do not contradict the interests of any academic division. The committee shall have authority to seek the correction of typographical and other non-substantive errors in the recommendations it receives. The committee shall have authority to act on behalf of the Faculty Conference on recommendations from a college of the following types: adding a course, dropping a course, renumbering a course, changing the prerequisites or corequisites of a course, and adding or changing requirements for a minor. This authority shall not be construed to limit the right of the faculty to review and act on academic policies at any time. Following each meeting of the committee, a report of its actions shall be communicated promptly to the members of the Faculty Conference. The committee shall consist of seven members: one member elected from each of the degree-granting colleges, one member elected by the Graduate Faculty Assembly, a Chair appointed by the Chair of the Academic Council from among the membership of Academic Council, and the Registrar or his or her designee. All members of the committee shall have served three years as a full-time faculty member at Winthrop University immediately preceding their election or appointment. The members elected from the degree-granting colleges shall serve as ex officio members of their college curriculum committees; the member elected from the Graduate Faculty Assembly shall be an ex officio member of Graduate Council. The Chair of the committee and the Registrar or his or her designee shall be nonvoting members of the committee. If a voting member cannot attend a meeting, an alternate with vote designated by the faculty from which the member was elected may attend in his or her place. For Faculty By-laws go to Policy Link 1.
