Q: Curriculum Currency

INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS ONLY

Title 5 requires departments to review all curricula (courses, certificates, degrees, sequences) in each program for currency, relevance, content, and requisites every six years (for CTE departments, every two years). Please review the data on your currency (showing a list of all activity from last year, all courses and programs that are one year from losing currency, and all courses/programs out of currency) and comment below. Please address how well your department is meeting this requirement.

Please review the Curriculum Currency Report attached to your Annual Plan.  In a short narrative, address the following:

  • Program updates – Briefly describe plans to ensure all programs are updated at least once every 6 years and maintain integrity and accuracy.
  • Course updates – Briefly describe plans to ensure all courses are updated at least once every 6 years.
  • Addendum updates – Briefly describe plans to ensure all Distance Education and Honors Addenda are updated at least once every 6 years and maintain integrity and accuracy.
