Curriculum Management

Curriculum Management

Curriculum is the essence of any college and is usually a shared responsibility of administration and faculty. At Del Mar College, the faculty has the primary responsibility for all aspects of curriculum.

It is the responsibility of the college and its Curriculum Committee to assure that the standards and regulations that govern curriculum procedures are followed for all curriculum matters. It is the obligation of the DMC college to assure that all programs/courses that are offered for transfer meet the particular standards of the institutions receiving transfer students from Del Mar College.

The Curriculum Committee participates in careful study and open discussion to assure the college’s curriculum has consistent quality, rigor, and compliance with state regulations and standards as well as with DMC policies and procedures. Moreover, they are to ensure consistency of course content, learning objectives, methods of evaluation, instruction and assessment, standards of reading and writing, and other aspects to ensure student success.

The Curriculum Manager ensures that all recommended curriculum revisions receive all required approvals and are compliant with State guidelines. After approval of proposed revisions, the Curriculum Manager will submit all necessary documentation for approval, update the necessary curriculum information in the Del Mar College catalog and work with the Registrar Office to update course and degree requirements in the registration system.

The Curriculum Manager is also responsible for being familiar with and applying the rules and regulations governing curriculum from the following authorities:

  • Texas Education Code
  • Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB)
  • Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC)
  • Del Mar College board policies and administrative procedures.
