Curriculum Committee

Curriculum Committee:

The Curriculum Committee reviews descriptions, learning objectives, and outcome expectations of each course and each instructional unit in the College annually (years 1-4).  It monitors redundancy in the curriculum and seeks out means to enhance preparation of graduates to meet goals of the College.  It recommends approval or modifications of the curriculum to the Dean and the Faculty, as deemed necessary for improvement of curriculum and instruction.

The Curriculum Committee consists of five Faculty members (three elected by the Faculty and two appointed by the Dean) who serve 3-year terms.  The committee shall determine the length of service terms for committee members so there is gradual replacement of the committee over time.  The student body will select two students to serve 1-year terms as voting members of the Curriculum Committee.  The Associate Deans for Academic Affairs, Clinical Rotations and Corporate Relations and Research and Outcomes Assessment serve as non-voting, ex officio members of the Curriculum Committee.
