Course and curriculum development in CLAS originates with our faculty at the departmental and/or program level. Once proposals are developed and approved at that level, they are forwarded for review at the college level – including the Educational Policies and Curriculum Committee, (for all course and curriculum proposals), and further review (for some curriculum proposals) by the CLAS Budget Priorities Committee, the CLAS Council, the CLAS Council of Chairs, etc.
Submissions to the Educational Policies and Curriculum Committee (EPCC)
The EPCC typically meets once per month in September, October, November, February, March and April to review course and curriculum proposals. Meeting dates and submission deadlines will be announced each semester through Dean's Notes and emails to department chairs and program directors. Proposals should be submitted to the appropriate CLAS Dean's Office liaison.
