Proposed Curriculum Management Systems Schematic  

The Curriculum Management Project is a large multi-year project under the auspices of the Office of the Registrar and Undergraduate Education. The project is dedicated to increasing the usability of, and integration between, the various systems on campus related to curriculum management, including the Academic Information System (AIS), Campus Curriculum and Leave Planning (CCLP), Online Curriculum Approval (OCA), Course Catalog, Webpages, etc.

The aim of the project is to minimize the administrative burden of creating and managing curriculum and to ensure we are providing students with complete, consistent and easy to access information they need to fulfill the academic requirements for their degrees.

These pages contain background information, documentation and progress reports for the project. Expected outcomes of this project are:

  • Reduced staff and faculty time spent on administration, freeing up time to spend on the academic aspects of curriculum management
  • Improved catalog functionality including tables of contents, search functionality across all aspects of the catalog, and support for tablets and mobile devices
  • Consistent presentation of program requirements across many platforms
  • Improvements in many areas such as workflow management, reduced data redundancy, enhanced data integrity, enhanced reporting

The project will be in two phases. Phase I will address curriculum approval system, the catalog production system and the catalog itself. Phase II will address scheduling of classes and leave planning.
