Motion to fill the full-time Curriculum Coordinator position in a Curriculum Office within Academic Affairs as soon as possible

10.17.2014

  • Whereas the following motion to create a full-time Curriculum Coordinator position was passed unanimously by Faculty Congress in Spring 2011:
  • "The CCRC requests that the University create a full-time position for a Curriculum Coordinator who will be responsible for facilitating the development and review processes of curriculum."
  • (Vote was 16 for, 0 opposed, 2 abstain. Motion passed.)
  • Whereas the problems with the process of Curriculum Review still remain a major concern.
  • Whereas these problems cannot be resolved by a single faculty member with one course release.
  • Whereas curriculum decisions and their implementation need to be owned by Academic Affairs.
  • Therefore, the Faculty Congress requests the administration fill the full-time Curriculum Coordinator position in a Curriculum Office within Academic Affairs as soon as possible.

  • UH Hilo Faculty Congress Vote: Yes – 15, No – 0, Abstain - 1

  • Motion sent to Chancellor and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs October 30, 2014.
