One Form Guide
This page offers guidance for CLA faculty members who propose new courses and changes to courses. One form, appropriately known as the “One Form,” is used for this process; in the case of new course proposals, “The Resources Form” is also required to ensure courses are fully supported. Faculty can find both forms on the menu to the left, along with line by line directions that should be read when filling out the One Form. University-wide policies that should appear on the syllabus of every new (and existing) coures are also provided on the menu to the left.
The One Form is designed to ensure consistency in college and university standards as the curriculum changes. But not every proposal requires review by exactly the same administrative bodies, and, in certain instances, the One Form can be employed for multiple purposes simultaneously. For example, a faculty member may wish to propose a new course and also propose that it should fulfill certain requirements. The One Form itself offers a brief list of the signatures needed for different kinds of proposals at the top of Section E directions. The following links provide description of the review stages necessary for seven different kinds of proposals, along with flowcharts showing the movements of the proposal between key contact persons.
