University Curriculum Committee (UCC)
The University Curriculum Committee (UCC) is responsible for a wide range of curriculum matters at the university. Whether it`s a change to an old course, the introduction of a new course or new program, or a change in requirements to a major or minor, the proposal must be reviewed by UCC. When it comes to single courses, the committee recommends actions to the Provost; with regard to larger matters, such as starting up new programs or departments, the committee makes recommendations for action to the Senate.
A separate page provides an overview of all curriculum committees at GVSU and the curricular review workflow.
Following review, UCC makes recommendations on all course proposals, degree requirements, program proposals, General Education and Basic Skills program changes, Honors courses, Continuing Education curricula, off-campus and summer programs, and accreditation processes. It conducts periodic evaluations of curriculum procedures and processes.
