Membership and Chair
The CPC membership is composed of one faculty member from each department of the College. Members are elected by departmental faculty in the spring semester for anticipated openings in the following academic year. Committee appointments are normally for three academic years. Committee members have the responsibility to provide information to their respective departments and to assure that views of the faculty are represented in curricular deliberations relevant to multiple departments.
The CPC Chairperson is selected by members of the committee. S/he provides regular updates to the faculty of the CNHS during faculty meetings. S/he also provides the Dean with a written year-end report of work accomplished or in progress at the end of the academic year. All meetings of the CPC are open to faculty and students of the College, unless there are matters that require the Committee to meet in Executive Session. Meeting minutes are posted on the college shared drive and available for review.
