The Curriculum Development Process Guide (CDPG) is undergoing extensive revision and will be largely off-line until that revision is complete. The newly revised curriculum forms are already available and are in themselves good guides to curriculum processes (see the Curriculum Forms tab or the link below). The list of existing courses approved for distance delivery remains available as well, linked below. If questions about the curriculum process arise, direct them to Dr. Kurt Boniecki (email@example.com), Chair of the Undergraduate Council, or Dr. Stephanie Bellar (firstname.lastname@example.org), Chair of the Graduate Council.
The purpose of the Curriculum Development Process Guide (CDPG) is to place under one cover (or more precisely, now, in one web location) information concerning the processes for course and program formation and change at the University of Central Arkansas. It is intended to provide faculty members, department chairpersons, curriculum committee members, and university administrators with the overall guidelines for the design and approval of courses and programs. A delineation of curriculum changes which are considered action or information items may be seen in the list of required forms.
Note: All curriculum proposals must be submitted in digital format (Microsoft Word) and in hard copy.
The CDPG is maintained by the Office of the Provost. Last updated: November 2013. See CDPG Document History.
