The Committee shall:
Approved course and program changes are forwarded by the Secretary to the Faculty Executive. The Secretary ensures that all relevant information has been provided and conforms to Senate format and meets Senate Committee on Curriculum and Course Changes deadlines for course changes.
The Committee shall meet at least three times a year. A June meeting deals with the majority of proposals to be submitted to Senate Committee on Curriculum and Course Changes to meet the September deadline. A follow up meeting will take place in late August or early September to finalize any outstanding proposals from the June meeting. A meeting is held in January/February to deal with changes that are beneficial to students but are not substantial (e.g. prerequisite removal, introduction of new courses for upcoming year). Other meetings may be called at the discretion of the Chair. The quorum shall be 50% of the voting membership plus one. The Chair votes only to break a tie.
