4.    CURRICULUM AND GENERAL EDUCATION COMMITTEE Ė Jim Wilson, Chair
The following policy was approved by the Curriculum and General Education Committee on November 13, 2002 and presented to the Faculty Senate as an information item.

Non-substantive course proposals and non-substantive program proposals may be handled by e-mail. The requested changes should be clearly explained in an e-mail from the chair of the department to the dean of the college. The dean may determine that the proposal should go to the college curriculum committee if there are inter-departmental issues within the college. Otherwise, if the dean approves the proposed change, the e-mail will be forwarded with the deanís statement of approval to the chair of the University Curriculum and General Education Committee. If the committee chair approves the change, it will be sent with a statement of approval to the Provostís office to be entered into the catalog. The chair will send a copy of the e-mail to the secretary of the faculty senate where a printed copy will be filed as a record of the change and the change will be entered in the minutes of the next Curriculum and General Education Committee.

Numerous changes to courses and major changes to programs, even if non-substantive in nature, may best be done on the standard course and program proposal forms in order to avoid mistakes by the submitting department or when entered into the catalog. The dean of the college where the proposal originates or the Chair of the University Curriculum and General Education Committee may require the complete forms at their discretion.

A memo regarding the above policy will be sent to department chairs and deans.
