A. This committee shall consist of the chair of the appropriate committee of each college or school having a committee on courses of instruction on the Davis campus ex officio, the Registrar of the Davis campus ex officio, the Chair of the Graduate Council Courses Committee ex officio, three additional members from each of the Colleges of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Biological Sciences, Letters and Science, and Engineering, one graduate student representative, two undergraduate student representatives and one representative appointed by the Davis Academic Federation. (Am. 5/7/2009, 9/1/2014)
B. It shall be the duty of this committee to advise at its discretion departments on the Davis campus and members of the Davis Division on the following matters: the formal approval of new courses of instruction, desirable modifications in courses already approved, the approval of special prerequisites for major subjects, the withdrawal or retention of courses, the conduct of courses, the credit valuation of courses, the classification of courses, review of Independent Study programs, and any other matters germane to courses of instruction with which the committee may be charged by the Division or other proper authority, as well as to provide oversight of the course evaluation process. The functions of the committee shall consist primarily of general policy determination for the Davis Division, coordination, and review, but the committee shall retain the power of final approval and shall finally decide such matters as may be properly appealed to it.
