The University Curriculum Committee (UCC) is a committee that falls under the realm of Faculty Senate. Faculty Senate is the legislative body at the university that acts for the university faculty in all matters pertaining to the immediate government of the university (see FSH 1420 Article IV and V).
UCC's primary purpose is to fulfill the role of shared governance in changes made to the university's curricular requirements. These include changes to curricula, courses, and general university requirements. UCC also serves as a major facilitator to coordinate curricular matters among the university's academic divisions. Finally UCC is charged with recommending policies and procedures concerning matriculation, advising, and registration of students.
The Office of the Registrar works very closely with UCC to implement faculty approved curricular, policy, and procedure changes in a timely and efficient manner. The Office of the Registrar is also charged with producing and publishing the General Catalog which details all of the current curricular requirements, academic units, and academic policies for the University.
