WKU Undergraduate Curriculum Committee



 The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee

The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UCC) is a standing committee of the University Senate. Composed of regular and advisory members representing the faculty, administration, and student body, the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee makes recommendation "to the University Senate concerning university-wide [undergraduate] academic policies" and reviews "particular [undergraduate] programs and courses to determine whether they meet the established standards." (Charter of the University Senate, 2001, 6) Specific functions of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee are covered by the UCC Bylaws Section IV. The Charter of the University Senate and the Bylaws of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee govern operation of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee. The mission of the UCC is not simply to consider the passage of undergraduate curricular and academic proposals but to insure the development of high quality undergraduate courses, programs, and academic policies that will help the University full its academic mission.
