Curriculum is the foundation of Skyline College and the student experience. Our curriculum is designed to reflect the diversity of the disciplines that make up our college community while highlighting different pedagogical philosophies and the strengths of our education and training.

Curriculum Committee Purpose

The Committee provides guidance and oversight to ensure that all curriculum is sound, comprehensive, culturally relevant and responsive to the evolving needs and realities of students and the academic, business, and local communities. 

Since faculty are charged with the primary responsibility for the development of new courses and programs and the revision of existing courses and programs, the Curriculum Committee is a standing sub-committee of the Skyline College Academic Senate

The primary role of the Curriculum Committee is to review and approve new and modified curriculum prior to their submission to the Board of Trustees for final approval. The Committee ensures that all curriculum is in compliance with Title 5, the California Education Code, State Chancellor’s Office rules, State legislation, and accreditation standards.  Another important role of the Committee is supporting faculty through Comprehensive Program Review
