 Executive Leadership Team09-03-2013

The Stanly Community College (SCC) Board of Trustees has ultimate and final authority over the addition, deletion, and inception of all curriculum programs.  In caring out that responsibility, the Board of Trustees invites the faculty to be actively engaged in the process.  Curriculum change and development at SCC is a faculty driven process and is carried out through collaboration among program faculty, Faculty Senate, and administration.  College faculty and Program Heads may find it appropriate to add programs of study, add courses, or make other changes to existing programs of study, all of which require curricular review and approval at the institution.  The SCC Faculty Senate has the responsibility for first level approval of all curricular review.
