From the Chair of the College Senate Curriculum Committee
The College Senate Curriculum Committee has reconvened with its reviewing process. Any curricular items sent to the College Senate Office during the winter break have been logged and forwarded to the CSCC for spring 2014 review. Please keep in mind that many items are up for review, and there is no timeline for when your item will be reviewed. Items submitted later in the spring semester will not be guaranteed review before the end of the spring semester. Please follow up with APRs (accepted pending revisions) that the CSCC has requested in order to expedite your courses and programs to the final approval level.
