The Chairperson or any faculty member may propose curriculum changes or new programs for consideration by the Department Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UGC) and/or the Graduate Studies Committee (GSC). The UGC or GSC, as appropriate, will forward its recommendations to the Department FAC. Proposals should include the nature of the change or new program, the rationale for the change or new program, and the effects on current curriculum and resources, and the need for any additional resources. A majority vote at a Department FAC meeting is necessary for approving a recommendation for any changes or new programs. Items approved by the Department FAC will be forwarded by the Chairperson through appropriate channels for approval and implementation.

Curriculum and programs should be reviewed at least every five years.
