Processes

Processes requiring Curriculum Committee approval (i.e., those involving academic courses and programs of study, and the review of courses, policies and procedures) are described in the NWIC Curriculum Committee Handbook.  The handbook and forms associated with the processes described therein are available elsewhere on this blog.

Here are the guidelines for the development, submission, and review of Curriculum Committee agenda items as approved by the Curriculum Committee 10-11-2011:

In addition, the Curriculum Committee’s formal functions include the approval of program outcomes as described in the following document:

Finally, below are two documents describing the seven phase process for the development of new academic programs of study representing the larger context within which some Curriculum Committee roles and responsibilities reside.  Note that this process also involves seven additional documents involving each phase of the process as follows: 1) program proposal, 2) gathering and analysis of data to research the program’s feasibility, 3) determining the program’s feasibility, 4) development of curriculum and resource projections, 5) approval of program and related courses, 6) implementation of the program, and 7) evaluation of the program.  These additional forms are not presented below as they are not involved directly in Curriculum Committee processes.  However, the Curriculum Committee does play a formal role in the deliberation and approval of the creation or revision of courses and the associated creation of new programs of study (as related to phase 5) and in the curricular review (which provides data associated with phase 7).
