3.9 Procedures for Establishing New Courses and Uniform Five Day Calendar



Procedures for Establishing New Courses:

  1. Each new course, including each course in the Core Program, together with its course description, its objectives, and its method of execution must receive the written approval of the professor or professors (or their appointed representative) in whose discipline or disciplines the course is based.
  2. Under normal circumstances the course should then be submitted to the appropriate Committee(s) for their information. Courses which meet both Scripps College and Claremont Colleges' needs will receive special consideration in the Faculty Executive Committee (FEC).
  3. The course, together with its supporting documents, shall be submitted to the Dean of the Faculty for review and approval.
  4. Following review of the course proposal, the Dean of the Faculty shall submit the course, together with its supporting documents, to FEC for its review and recommendations. If FEC has any serious reservations about the course it will invite the sponsor of the course to submit any added information it may need to arrive at a fair decision.
  5. Once FEC has voted favorably on the course, the course will be submitted to the Scripps Faculty for its final approval.
    FEC will make its recommendation to the Scripps Faculty with the following criteria in mind:
    1. The qualifications of the professor to teach the course.
      1. Is the course a natural extension of the formal training of the professor in question?
      2. If it is not, has the professor by special study, by publication, or by other demonstrated and accepted evaluative means given sufficient evidence of his qualifications to teach the course?
    2. The relationship of the course to the curriculum of Scripps College.
      1. Does the course reflect the College's commitment to the liberal arts?
      2. Does the course contribute substantially to the curriculum of the major area or department in which it is based?
      3. Does it help strengthen major interests in other area of the College?
      4. Does the course permit the College and the professor concerned to make adequate use of the professor's areas of competence and interest?

FEC will be expected to interpret all of these criteria broadly and generously and will encourage professors to submit courses of an interdisciplinary nature whenever the qualifications of the professor make such courses desirable and possible.
