|Re:||Meeting schedule and deadlines for proposals, 2006-2007|
As indicated in the guidelines for Preparation and Approval of Proposals:
“Proposers need to initiate proposals early enough to make sure they are completely approved in time to be included in the schedule of courses for a given semester. (1) The last step in the approval process-approval by the Provost-can occur no later than the very beginning of the semester before the course is scheduled to be offered. Courses that have not been approved by the Provost will not be printed in the published schedule of classes. (2) In turn, this means that recommendation for approval by Faculty Senate must be complete by the end of the previous semester. Proposals are considered for approval by Faculty Senate the meeting after they are presented (or placed on the agenda). (3) Therefore, courses must receive recommendation for approval by UCPRC or GCPRC, no later than one month before the end of the semester. UCPRC or GCPRC has the same procedure as does Senate, to consider for approval the meeting after a course is presented. (4) This means that a course must pass divisional curriculum committee no later than two months before the end of that semester.”
In order to help this year’s proposal process go smoothly and to meet the schedule of the Senate, please see the following schedule of meetings for the 2006-2007 year.
