This committee shall have responsibility to review and approve curricula in three areas:

1.  General Curriculum.  The committee studies revisions and 
     changes to the general curriculum of the University and brings
     recommendations to the Provost, deans and Faculty Senate.
     Periodically, the committee reviews course offerings to identify 
     duplications and proliferation.

2.  Academic Programs.  The committee advises the Provost on the
     curricula of programs offering academic credit.

3.  School Curricula.  The committee advises the Provost and deans
     on curriculum matters within the schools that have University
     level implications.  Curriculum decisions of all schools are
     submitted to the University Curriculum Committee for advisory
     review of their consistency with University policy.  In this 
     process, the unique responsibility of the faculties of each of the
     schools and colleges for their individual curriculum policies and
     programs is recognized.
