It is strongly encouraged that the sponsor of a proposal follow their proposal through the College Curriculum Committee and the University Curriculum Committee until it has been passed. The sponsor is in the best position to respond to questions concerning their proposal and in expediting the approval process.

After brief discussion, it was resolved that from now on the committee may approve proposals with minor editorial corrections but will not approve proposals pending substantial revision. Departments should ensure that proposals are clear and complete before placing them on the Curriculum Committee agenda.
