Curriculum development

One of the highest priorities of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences (IAS) is to provide superior instruction to students. Faculty are responsible for defining and developing the curriculum. Faculty work with their Division Chairs to propose the annual schedule, taking into account the information provided by the curricular staff. This page will provide faculty with resources to assist in the curriculum process.

Please contact Bonnie Becker or Kelly Kledzik via email if you are developing a new course or a course change and have any questions.
