WKU Undergraduate Curriculum Committee

The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee

The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UCC) is a standing committee of the University Senate. Composed of regular and advisory members representing the faculty, administration, and student body, the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee makes recommendation "to the University Senate concerning university-wide [undergraduate] academic policies" and reviews "particular [undergraduate] programs and courses to determine whether they meet the established standards" (Charter of the University Senate, 2001, 6). Specific functions of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee are covered by the UCC Bylaws Section IV. The Charter of the University Senate and the Bylaws of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee govern operation of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee. The mission of the UCC is not simply to consider the passage of undergraduate curricular and academic proposals but to insure the development of high quality undergraduate courses, programs, and academic policies that will help the University full its academic mission.

Temporary Course Proposals

English 152, Academic Writing for International Students

A remedial course designed to provide support in academic writing for a range of International students beginning graduate programs at the university. Students enrolled in this course need assistance developing grammar, vocabulary, and academic writing skills to meet the university-mandated proficiency requirements.  While this course does not address disciplinary writing standards or writing research papers and theses, the course does lay the foundation for the development of these advanced skills with further English study.
