The University Curriculum Committee has primary responsibility for coordinating curricula across the University’s academic components. Its role is based on the premise that primary responsibility for curriculum rests with the faculty in each academic unit in each college. As a result, TWU’s curriculum represents a diversity of programs to meet student needs within a unified whole that requires coordination among academic components.
The University Curriculum Committee membership [PDF] is composed of faculty members and a representative of the Library nominated by the Faculty Senate Committee Selection Committee and appointed by the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. One undergraduate student is nominated by the Vice President for Student Life, and one graduate student is appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. A representative of the Academic Council is designated by the Academic Council. Ex-officio members include the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Senior Associate Provost, the Associate Provost for Undergraduate Studies and Academic Partnerships, the Dean of the Graduate School, the Registrar, and the Director of the Office of Teaching and Learning with Technology.
The work of the University Curriculum Committee is facilitated by the Office of the Senior Associate Provost. Committee members carry out liaison assignments [PDF] to assist academic components with their proposals to the committee according to the timeline [PDF] for each academic year.
