The Curriculum Review Council exists primarily to serve the President in an advisory capacity on curricula matters and standards.  It reviews all proposals received relative to course offerings, curricula, and related topics and forwards them to the President with recommendations for his approval.  The council also undertakes assignment of any study of curriculum-related matters considered necessary by the President and/or Provost and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs.

The membership of the Curriculum Review Council consists of the following individuals: fourteen faculty members, to include representatives from each of the colleges, appointed by Deans; a faculty representative selected by the Faculty Senate; President of the Student Government Association; the Provost and Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs, who chairs the Council; the Executive Director of Fort Polk Center; the University Registrar; and the Director of University Libraries.  A member of the Council who is unable to attend a meeting may assign his or her proxy to a full-time faculty member from the same unit he or she is representing on the Council.
