Curriculum Development

Initial Considerations

 The development and implementation of sound curriculum takes approximately one academic year. The AP&P Committee calculates that the initial development of curriculum proposals, prior to official signatures, usually takes between 8-10 weeks, and sometimes even more. Thus, initiators are encouraged to start their work a semester ahead of their proposed time frame for presenting a COMPLETE curriculum proposal to the AP&P Committee:

The quality and integrity of curriculum are first and foremost. New curriculum proposals must:

  • be compatible with the philosophy and mission of the college
  • respond to or reflect community or student needs
  • have available resources
  • meet curriculum standards

Effective fall 2014 and in accordance with the AP&P Calendar, all curriculum proposals will be submitted via CurricUNET.

Most importantly, I learned 'que si, se puede' that 'yes, you can!'"
