Curriculum Committee

The Curriculum Committee is charged with making recommendations to the Executive Committee on issues related to the development, review, implementation, and assessment of all aspects of curriculum, both at the college and state level, through a lens of Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Antiracism, and Accessibility.

The committee distributes information through institutes and other forms of professional development, the website, and listservs, as well as senate publications. Under the direction of the president, the chair and/or members of the Curriculum Committee provide technical assistance to local college curriculum committees, academic senates, and the faculty in general.

Note: Resolution 15.03 S94 charged the Senate with appointing a library science member and noted past recommendations to the Senate to appoint a counselor, articulation officer, vocational education and basic skills faculty.

Membership of this committee includes a Chief Instructional Officer (CIO) appointed by the California Community Colleges Chief Instructional Officers organization

Updated May 2024

Members of this committee also assist with the planning of the Curriculum Institute.
