Yes! Is it true that you can request any NUpath attribute regardless of department or the level of the course or the semester hours of the course because the NUpath requirements are competency based and not course based, this provides flexibility for our students to choose the context in which you experience learning the competency. Being competency based also ensures the rigor of meeting the NUpath requirements because the learning goals set the achievement level – not course content or level. Analyzing and Using Data, for example, can be learned in the context of fields as diverse as electrical engineering, or psychology, or international business, or music industry. The review process for approving courses for Analyzing and Using Data (and for any requirement), require that the course provides students with the opportunities to engage with the course material to achieve the same high-bar learning goals – regardless of the topic of the course.

The UUCC is the University Undergraduate Curriculum Committee.  It is composed of members across all colleges of the University including CPS and a representative of the undergraduate student body.  It also includes representation from the registrar’s office and the library.  The UUCC is charged by the Faculty Senate to “consider and make recommendations to the Senate concerning any proposals for undergraduate curriculum changes.”  The UUCC is “the Senate’s designee in considering interdepartmental and intercollege disputes arising from matters concerning courses or programs offered or proposed.” [Quotes are from the current UUCC Bylaws.]
