The Curriculum Review Committee (CRC) is charged in the Office of the Provost to provide guidance on curricular connections and impact across schools/colleges, on academic policies and procedures moving through shared governance, and on the implementation of curriculum. The committee does not approve curriculum, but it can identify problems that may need to be addressed prior to its approval (e.g., a regulatory conflict, undue overlap with a course in another school), and it makes recommendations to the provost for approval. The committee meets monthly and collaborates on such projects as academic catalogs issues, program review process (but not specialized accreditation), and considering how policies cut across colleges/schools. The committee also helps communicate out from the Office of the Provost to other academic units matters related to academic policy and procedure, including program review.
CRC members are academic associate deans from the Yale Gordon College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Public Affairs, the Merrick School of Business, and the School of Law; the Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management and Registrar; the Associate Registrar, and the associate provost.
When program directors are in the early stages of developing curriculum (prior to approvals), they are encouraged to contact one or more members from the CRC for technical support and assistance. They are also encouraged to reach out to other units such as Enrollment Management and Marketing to discuss program markets and student demand, marketing strategies, and naming. CELTT can assist in thinking about assessment and instructional strategies.
