Curricular Processes

Concurrence

It is acknowledged that the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary scholarly research produces inevitable overlaps among subject domains and academic departments. However, in cases in which students or faculty might reasonably view a proposed course as within the subject domain of another department/college, that department/college should be asked to evaluate the proposed course. The question of needed concurrence should be addressed by the curriculum committee of the college initiating the submission or may be requested by the UGC. A note of concurrence from the other department/college should indicate that it has no objection to the new course proposal. If differences are present, the two departments/colleges should attempt to resolve the problems prior to course proposal submission. If reasonable and timely response is not received, the proponent of the course can proceed with the submission to the UGC.
