​Appealing Decisions of the CCC

In those cases in which the Core Curriculum Committee (CCC) has rendered a final negative response to a proposed course for the core curriculum, the proposer, in conjunction with his or her department chair (or program director), may file an appeal.

The appeal will be sent to the CCC, who will then set up a two-person committee consisting of the provost and a former member of the CCC. After discussing the case with the CCC, as well as the proposer, the provost and faculty member will render a decision in writing. Only when both members agree that the course should be approved is the prior decision of the CCC successfully appealed. The decision will be final. The chair of the CCC will inform the relevant parties of the approval. The appeal should take no more than a month from its filing to the final determination.
