After consulting with the chairs of the college curriculum committees UCC is adopting a "fast-track" procedure for the expedited review of SORs. This fast-track process is used if a unit verifies with Records that no SOR exists, or if the unit determines that the existing SOR does not match current practice in the course. The fast-track process cannot be used to change any aspect of an existing course (description, credits, prereqs, etc.).
The process is outlined on the UCC website (as is the outline for a Syllabus of Record). This link is to the memo outlining the process.
Judith Corr is currently the chair of CLAS CC, beginning in May, Carolyn Shapiro-Shapin will serve as chair for the summer months. Regina Smith will serve as chair for 2013-14 beginning in mid to late August.
