The Office of Undergraduate Curricula provides administrative support for several faculty committees.
The Administrative Boards of the General College and the College of Arts and Sciences are responsible for reviewing and approving new programs and curricula, among other responsibilities. Members of the Boards also serve on one of two subcommittees: the Curriculum Committee and the Subcommittee on Appeals. Staff in the Office of Undergraduate Curricula provide support for each meeting.
The Course Committee is a subcommittee of the Administrative Boards of the General College and College of Arts and Sciences. It is chaired by the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Curricula. The Curriculum Analyst and Curriculum Director provide support for each meeting. The committee reviews the following undergraduate course proposals:
- New course proposals
- General Education course proposals
- Course edits and inactivation course proposals
Course Substitution Review Committee
The Course Substitution Review Committee includes representatives from the Office of Undergraduate Curricula, Accessibility Resources and Service, The Learning Center, and faculty from a foreign language department and a mathematics department. The committee meets at least 3 times in the fall and spring semesters.
Interdisciplinary Studies Advisory Board
The interdisciplinary studies (IDST) major is directed by the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Curricula in conjunction with an Advisory Board, representing the three divisions of the College. The Board reads and approves all proposals, and initiates any policy changes.
General Education Oversight Committee
The General Education Oversight Committee (GEOC) oversees assessment of the IDEAs in Action curriculum, examines results, and proposes curricular change. The committee is comprised of five members of the voting faculty elected by the faculty, one faculty member appointed by the dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, the chair of the Educational Policy Committee, EPC, or her/his designee from EPC membership, two undergraduate students appointed by UNC Student Government, and ex officio members from Undergraduate Education.
The committee operates under the auspices of the Administrative Boards of the College of Arts & Sciences and will be supported sufficiently to allow ongoing assessment and consideration of innovations in the amendment of the curriculum. Institutional Research and Assessment will gather and provide appropriate data as needed to support the committee’s work.
