10 Procedures for Approval of New Undergraduate Curricula and Changes in Undergraduate Curricula (En 28 May 81)

10.1 All proposals for new undergraduate curricula which have been approved by the appropriate Faculty shall be forwarded to the Committee on Educational Policy for review and recommendation. The committee shall conduct such review as it deems necessary and forward its recommendation to the Division for final action. No new curricula may be instituted unless approved by the Division.

10.2 All proposed changes in undergraduate curricula must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate faculty of a department or program/oversight committee and the appropriate Executive Committee prior to submission to the committee on Educational Policy. The committee has final authority to approve or disapprove recommended changes except as otherwise provided in this paragraph. All changes approved by the Committee on Educational Policy shall be reported to the Division. Any proposed change in a curriculum may, at the discretion of the committee, be referred to the Division for final action. If the committee has acted finally, any five voting members of the Division may request that a decision of the committee be referred to the Division for further consideration and final action; provided, however, that the request is filed, in conformity with Bylaw 6.1, within 45 calendar days of the committee's report being received and placed on file at a meeting of the Division. In the event the Division takes no action, the decision of the Committee on Educational Policy remains final.(Am 30 May 06)
