SAC Faculty Senate urges THECB to reject core curriculum change

Letter sent to Dr. Rex Peebles at the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. From the letter:

Because faculty members have not had the opportunity to participate fully in the process of curriculum design and review and Dr. Leslie has unilaterally disregarded the procedures we have in place to allow for us to best advocate for the needs of our students, we urge you to reject the amendment to the core curriculum. We ask for the time sufficient to vet this course, ensure its curriculum is of highest quality, and work with our administrative and faculty colleagues to determine the optimal placement of the course in our programs.

Attached to the request were two flow charts which clearly show the channels of communication, levels of deliberation and procedural steps which are required in order to approve a new program or a new course.
