The Curriculum Committee is charged with a continuing review of the general and specialized education provided by the University?s curriculum. The Committee is essentially concerned with the integrity of the curriculum in terms of the University?s philosophy and objectives. It is responsible for the curriculum as a whole and for individual departmental curriculum proposals. Part of the responsibility includes reviewing and making recommendations on new course proposals. The Committee is also concerned with any major rearrangements of the academic year which affect the basic pattern of the curriculum.
