Curriculum Development is a collaborative process, in which faculty within each program propose classes or degree plan changes. Proposals are then deliberated on and approved by a faculty committee in the originating school, the dean of the school, appropriate Faculty Senate committees, the full Faculty Senate, the Provost, and any necessary external stakeholders.
The curriculum development process is defined by section 4.5 of the Faculty Manual, within the framework of state and federal laws.
More information about curriculum development, as well as links to forms to submit new course or program changes, can be found on the Curriculum Development webpage on the UHV intranet. Information about SACSCOC and THECB requirements for new courses or programs, and about the core curriculum, may also be found there.
For UHV Faculty: Please visit our Curriculum Development SharePoint Site for step-by-step guides in the proposal process.
