WKU Undergraduate Curriculum Committee

The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee

The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UCC) is a standing committee of the Faculty Senate. It is composed of regular and advisory members representing the faculty, administration, and student body. The UCC makes proposals "to the Faculty Senate concerning university-wide undergraduate academic policies" and reviews "particular undergraduate programs and courses to determine whether they meet established standards" (Charter of the Faculty Senate, 2019, 9). Specific functions of the UCC are covered by the UCC Bylaws Section IV. The Charter of the Faculty Senate and the Bylaws of the UCC govern operation of the UCC. The mission of the UCC is to insure the development of high quality undergraduate courses, programs, and academic policies that will assist the University in fulfilling its academic mission.
