Academic Programs Committee
The Academic Programs
Committee (APC) shall review curricular proposals for the creation, deletion, or
modification of academic programs and courses. In their review of curricular
proposals, members of the committee shall determine (1) whether the degree
program or course is academically appropriate in a particular college or
department, (2) whether there is overlap, repetition, or redundancy in the
creation of new degree programs or courses, and (3) whether all relevant
parties have been consulted and had the chance to review the proposal. Matters
of presentation of academic curricula – the UNF Catalog, for instance -- are
the responsibility of Academic Affairs; matters of compliance with
accreditation standards are the responsibility of the relevant
department/college and/or Academic Affairs.
Representatives to the APC Committee shall review all proposals in a
timely manner and work with departments to formulate final submissions.
General questions should be directed to the current APC Chair at email@example.com.
