The curriculum committee plays a central role in the California Community Colleges. This role has expanded tremendously with the expanding role of faculty in community college governance and with the expanding demand for a curriculum which is flexible and responsive to the needs of our increasingly diverse student body. These demands have necessitated, now more than ever, that faculty understand the role of the curriculum committee, remain committed to high curriculum standards, and implement the college curriculum in an organized, efficient manner. To that end, this document reflects the collective wisdom of the faculty of the California Community Colleges and is recommended as a compilation of requirements and good practices to our colleagues charged with that task closest to our professional calling--the development, review, renewal, and approval of sound curricula.
