Curriculum Committee Web Site

Here you will find meeting agendas, minutes, documents, and links related to course and program proposal creation, submission, and approval.  Visit the Curriculum Central Course Proposal Guide for information on how to write a comprehensive course proposal, along with well-written examples selected from recently approved proposals.

Please see these excerpts from the UH Leeward Faculty Senate Charter and Bylaws to better understand the Curriculum Committee's function within the curriculum approval process.


The 2014-15 deadlines for outline proposal submission:

  • Fall - Friday, September 26, 2014
  • Spring - Friday, November 21, 2014

Note the following:

  • The deadlines are the dates when a proposal must be approved by a division chair and submitted to the Curriculum Committee.
  • The Curriculum Committee has two deadlines to encourage proposers to submit outlines early in the academic year. This allows us to avoid a large influx of outlines too late in the year to complete all the work.
  • Most proposers should submit by the first deadline. The second deadline is meant for courses that proposers did not know about when the year started, or for people who just could not get them done on time.
  • All outlines should have fall effective dates.
