Undergraduate Curriculum Committee

Announcement from Undergraduate Curriculum Committee Chair:

The first meeting of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee for the 2013-2014 academic year will be Friday, September 20 in the Board of Governors room from 2-4pm. Subsequent meetings are scheduled at the same venue and time, unless otherwise notified, for the third Friday in each month: October 18, November 15, December 20, February 21, March 21, April 18 and May 16.

Proposals to be considered at each meeting are due by noon on the last Friday of each month prior to the month in which the proposal will be presented. This is 21 days prior to each scheduled Undergraduate Curriculum Committee meeting (all dates listed below). This is necessary to enable the Executive Committee to check them through and make any necessary changes, and to allow time for minor revisions before coming to the full committee.

Date proposals are due for each monthly meeting. Executive UCC  meeting dates: usually Fridays 2-4pm UCC meeting dates: 2-4pm on the following Fridays

Please check that you are using the current form (it was last updated July 2013) that can be downloaded from the “Forms and Information” page of this website. All proposals use the same form, which is split into different sections. Only submit the sections that are relevant to your proposal (delete from the document any sections that are not being used). Double check before submitting that you have provided all the correct information, and do not forget to provide catalog copy that reflects any changes you are planning to make. While there are guidelines embedded on the form itself in a series of smart tips, there are also more detailed instructions on the “Forms and Information” page, and in section 4.2 of the UCC Manual, for filling in the form and creating catalog copy. The names and affiliations of those whose signatures are required should be included on the electronic copy of the approval/acknowledgement page of each proposal before its initial submission. The paper copy of your proposal with the actual signatures must be submitted prior to the UCC meeting at which your proposal is to be discussed, or the proposal will be tabled. Email your electronic submission to the Chair of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee at curriculum@ric.edu as soon as it is ready. There is also a timeline on the “Forms and Information” page to give you a sense of when you need to get proposals to the committee to enable a timely implementation. If you have questions, please contact the chair, Sue Abbotson, ext. 2803 or email curriculum@ric.edu.
