Welcome to Fullerton College curriculum
The curriculum is the major statement any institution makes about itself, about what it can contribute to the intellectual development of students, about what it thinks is important in its teaching service to society.
(The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, 1979)
AB 1725, the community college reform bill, assigned to faculty the “primary responsibility for making recommendations in the areas of curriculum and academic standards.” The Fullerton College Curriculum Committee has been responsible for this function since 1990. The Committee looks at all new and revised courses and programs in order to ensure their quality and effectiveness. We are currently streamlining the process, through the use of CurricUNET, a curriculum management system.
This information is the product of many people over many years, and much of the material here comes from previous handbooks; the work that previous faculty, management and classified staff have done is invaluable. Hopefully, the handbook will act as an accumulated body of institutional knowledge to help faculty and staff understand and successfully complete the process.
