3.4.10 The institution places primary responsibility for the content, quality, and effectiveness of the curriculum with its faculty. (Responsibility for curriculum)
Findings of the Off-Site Reaffirmation Committee
The primary responsibility for the curriculum lies with the faculty. This is clear from the processes in place to initiate new courses or programs or discontinue them. Either individual faculty or faculty committees (University Course and Curricula Committee and the Graduate Council) are involved in these processes. Programs are periodically reviewed as is evident from the materials related to Accounting, Mechanical Engineering and others supplied as examples.
Although policy documents and copies of proposals have been provided, copies of signed documents showing evidence of the actual approval process at every level have not been provided.
