UW Curriculum Committee

The UW Curriculum Committee (UWCC) is a standing technical review committee that meets on a regular basis to consider proposed changes to the University curriculum. The committee consists of members appointed by the following:

  • The Dean of Undergraduate Academic Affairs
  • The Dean of the Graduate School
  • The Faculty Senate
  • The Chancellor, UW Tacoma
  • The Chancellor, UW Bothell

Primary oversight of curriculum and course content lies with the faculty at the departmental and college/school/campus level. The UWCC works to assure uniformity across all three campuses and to assure meaningful course designation for catalogs as well as for student transcripts and records. The committee also works to assure appropriate articulation in course and curriculum development with other administrative bodies across campuses (for example, FCAS and the Graduate School).
