Curriculum Committee Purpose
Curriculum is the backbone of Skyline College. It reflects the diversity of the disciplines that make up our college community, the different pedagogical philosophies we bring to the classroom, and the strengths of our education and training. Faculty are charged with the primary responsibility for the development of new courses and programs and the revision of existing courses and programs.
The primary role of the Curriculum Committee is to approve new and revised curriculum and academic policies to ensure compliance with Title 5 and the California Education Code prior to submission to the Board of Trustees for final approval. In addition, the Skyline College Curriculum Committee provides guidance and oversight to ensure that all curriculum is sound, comprehensive and responsive to the evolving needs of our students as well as the academic, business, and local communities.
The Committees Responsibilities are in:
- Curriculum, including course and program approval
- Degree and certificate requirements
- Grading policies as they pertain to course outlines
- Educational programs
- Program review
The Curriculum Committee website contains committee membership and meeting dates, agendas and minutes, processes and CurricuNET instructions for submitting new and modified course proposals, the Curriculum Committee Handbook, and Program Review information.
