CURRICULUM DISCUSSION:

The Curriculum Committee is in the process of reviewing Learning Outcomes to evaluate credits of a course. Currently they are in the learning-sharing mode with faculty representatives for courses. As the committee becomes more experienced in evaluating Learning Outcomes, faculty will be required to conform to the curriculum guidelines for Learning Outcomes.

For faculty currently preparing course outcomes, assistance is available. Please contact Guy Sievert, Dean of Academic Services to request a mentor for support in constructing your learning outcomes.
