Curriculum Appeals Committee


The Curriculum Appeals Committee handles disputes about curriculum recommendations (e.g., from the Academic Senate’s ASCC, GEGB, and USCP committees).  Members of this committee are required to understand the nature of disputes concerning curriculum recommendations pulled from the Academic Senate consent agenda.


As needed.


The Curriculum Appeals Committee membership is limited to three in total.  Members will need to be knowledgeable about the curriculum as a whole so that they are nimble enough to understand disputed curriculum recommendations in the context of a major and minor affected programs.  Consequently, membership is limited to faculty with previously demonstrated overall curricular knowledge.  Eligible faculty for membership (per resolution AS-711-10) will be appointed by the Academic Senate Executive Committee for one-year or partial-year terms. 

Eligible faculty should include at least two members from "List 1" and at least one member from "List 2". The committee will be limited to three members in total who are appointed for a 1-year term.

LIST 1: Former Academic Senate Chairs, former Academic Senate Curriculum Committee Chairs who served for a minimum of two catalog cycles, and former members of the Academic Senate Curriculum Committee who served for a minimum of two catalog cycles.

LIST 2: Former GE Directors/Chairs who served for a minimum of two catalog cycles and former GE Committee/Board members who served for a minimum of two catalog cycles. Since at any given time there may not be enough full time faculty who are eligible to serve on the committee, FERPs who satisfy any of the categories on List 1 or List 2 are also eligible to serve.
