Faculty within a discipline will review new or modified curriculum within their discipline.  Faculty are grouped by disciplines and communicate with each other through a College-Wide Discipline Area Committee (CDAC).  CDACs have a role in the review of curriculum during the curriculum approval process.  The process includes: 

  1. Prepared curriculum documents are submitted to the appropriate CDAC for review.
  2. The CDAC may review and comment on the curriculum submissions.
  3. The CDAC chair person must sign the CDAC Curriculum Review Form and submit the form to the College Curriculum Office.
  4. The College Curriculum Office submits the CDAC comments and/or recommendation to the College Curriculum Council. 

Additional responsibilities are specified in the Curriculum Procedures Manual and in the Guidelines for College Discipline Area Committees.
