The committee receives proposals for deletion, new programs, new courses and changes to the advanced graduate programs from COE departments and administrative personnel. The committee meets monthly or as called by the Chair. The committee makes recommendations to the Dean of the College of Education who reviews them, and in turn, makes recommendations to appropriate University committees and the Provost.
