Regional Curriculum Colloquia and Delegated Approval Authority


A solid curriculum is the backbone of any college. In the California Community College system, curriculum oversight is provided by the Board of Governors and the Chancellor and is recognized as a matter on which the Chancellor relies primarily on the advice and recommendations of the Academic Senate. (See Appendix 1, Education Code, Section 70901.) The Board of Governors is given the authority to set minimum standards for credit and noncredit classes and to review and approve all educational programs offered by community college districts and all courses that are not offered as part of an educational program.
