Executive Committee Review - Proposals that substantially
modify the curricula; adding new requirements; increasing graduation hours;
requests to establish new curricula; requests to delete programs.
Administrative Approval - Proposals requesting minor
modifications to programs, e.g., substituting one course for another within the
major; updating courses to ensure that the program conforms to current course
offerings; replacing courses that have been dropped.
In most cases, it is easy to distinguish between major
and minor revisions and to determine the appropriate level of review. In
cases where the distinction is unclear, The Executive Director will determine
the Executive Committee’s preference to discuss the proposal. If one or
more members of the Executive Committee indicate a preference for discussing
the proposal, it will be placed on the next agenda. If all members of the
Executive Committee indicate that the proposal does not warrant extensive
discussion and consideration by the full Committee, the Executive Director will
administratively approve it.
For those proposals that are administratively approved,
the Executive Director will routinely report the action taken on them to the
Effective Fall Semester, 2001, program revision proposals must include an appendix that addresses how the proposed revision relates to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Conceptual Framework and all pertinent ISBE standards for program approval.
