Whereas, Colleges and districts have a variety of local curriculum processes, including timelines indicating when courses and programs are submitted to technical review committees, curriculum committees, academic senates, and governing boards;
Whereas, Timely curriculum processes are required for all disciplines and programs; and
Whereas, Colleges would benefit from a paper outlining effective practices for local processes on curriculum approval;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges survey curriculum chairs on the timeliness of their local curriculum approval processes by Fall 2015 and develop a paper on effective practices for local curriculum approval and present it to the field for adoption at the Fall 2016 Plenary Session.
The paper was adopted, published, and is available in the ASCCC Publication database.
