Compass Curriculum Committees and Membership
2017-2018

The Compass Curriculum has the following committees:

  • Curriculum Committee
  • Inclusiveness Advisory Committee
  • Sustainability Advisory Committee
  • Navigate Advisory Committee
  • Assessment Advisory Committee

Membership:

The Curriculum Committee of the Compass Curriculum is comprised of Compass Officers (Director and Chairs), as well as a faculty member from each college (LAS, SPA, Beth-El, Business, Engineering, Education, Library). An additional LAS faculty member may be from the Communication Center/Communication Department to evaluate the communication component of the Summit courses. In some cases Compass officers also serve as representatives from their colleges. Ex-officio (non-voting) members include a representative from Degree Audit and Transfer Credit, and the administrative assistant. The representative from the office of Degree Audit and Transfer Credit helps the committee to consider prerequisites for courses and where they might fit into the sequence of a student’s major.

Purview:

The Curriculum Committee of the Compass Curriculum reviews all courses submitted to the Compass Curriculum in the categories of GPS, Explore, Writing Intensive, Sustainability, Summit, Navigate, and Inclusiveness. The committee votes to determine whether the courses should be approved into the Compass Curriculum.
