Process for Liberal Education Course Submission
The Liberal Education Subcommittee of the Educational Policy Committee will review courses submitted for inclusion in the Liberal Education Program using the following process.
1. Complete the appropriate form(s) listed below.
2. Once the form is complete, faculty members will forward the form to the department head for approval.
3. If the department head approves the course, the form will be forwarded to the dean for approval.
