V403.01 CURRICULUM CHANGE PROCEDURES

Curriculum changes at Valley City State University are initiated and approved within the Constitution of the Faculty Association. The Curriculum Committee, a Faculty Association committee, is responsible for continued evaluation of the academic requirements of the University and for keeping the faculty informed of current trends.

The Curriculum Committee receives requests for curriculum changes initiated by faculty within each department. The committee refers all approved curricular change requests involving education programs to the Teacher Education Committee for review.

The Curriculum Committee then makes recommendations to the Faculty Senate. Recommendations receiving a unanimous vote from the Faculty Senate are forwarded to the President of the University for formal implementation or submission to the Board of Higher Education.
