University Committee on Curriculum (UCC)

The role of the University Committee on Curriculum (UCC) is to fulfill the responsibility delegated to the faculty to shape the curriculum. The curriculum refers to programs of study, those requirements and courses which contribute to the completion of all or some requirements that lead to the awarding of a credential known as a degree or certificate. The determination to offer a credential is a responsibility delegated to the provost who, as the chief academic officer of the university, is responsible for the administrative support essential to assure the sustained offering of degrees and certificates.
