Historical Note

The University Committee on Curriculum exercises "the faculty's delegated authority to review and approve or reject all changes in undergraduate curricula and degree requirements recommended by the University Committee on Undergraduate Studies, and to review and approve or reject changes in graduate and graduate-professional curricula and degree requirements recommended by the University Committee on Graduate Studies." They must give a rationale for rejection and consult with the appropriate committee. Additionally, the committee reviews and approves or rejects courses proposed by academic units.

The committee consists of one faculty member from each college, five undergraduate students, one of whom must be a member of the Academic Assembly of ASMSU, and two graduate students. The Provost (or his/her designee) serves as a member with voice, but no vote. The Provost also appoints an executive secretary to serve ex officio without vote.
