College of Education and Allied Professions

College Resources and Governance

Welcome to the College of Education and Allied Professions (CEAP). The primary role of the College is to prepare educators, counselors, psychologists, recreation personnel, and other human service specialists at both entry and advanced levels. These professionals will staff public elementary, secondary, postsecondary schools, sport and recreation agencies, and other human service organizations in North Carolina and the region beyond.

The College fulfills its mission by developing and maintaining a community of scholars that promotes and recognizes good teaching, service, and research. Of these three scholarly activities, providing optimal learning environments for students is most important, followed by service and research.

CEAP provides undergraduate and graduate programs, including both traditional and online instruction.

Curriculum Changes

To change the curriculum, you must initiate a change proposal in Curriculog, the curriculum management system. There are two main types of changes you can make to the curriculum:

  • Course changes: this includes creating or deleting courses and changing an existing course's properties such as prefix, number, title, description, credit hours, and prerequisites. Changes made to a course will affect that course no matter where it is listed in the catalog. For example, if you change the title of a course, the title will automatically update in any academic program listing in the catalog that requires that course.
  • Program changes: this includes creating or deleting academic programs and making changes to them, such as what courses are required, what concentrations or cores (groups of classes) are in the program, and the admissions requirements.

A typical curriculum change must be approved by:

  • curriculog administrator
  • department curriculum committee
  • department head
  • college curriculum committee
  • college dean
  • university level curriculum committee - Liberal Studies, Undergraduate Curriculum, Graduate Council, and/or Professional Education Council (your proposal may need to go through more than one committee)
  • faculty senate
  • provost's office & registrar

Each of the committees meets approximately once per month during the fall and spring semesters. The meetings are scheduled so a proposal without problems can flow through them within a few months.

The college curriculum committee co-chairs for 2019-2020 are Resa Chandler (tmchandler@wcu.edu) and Derek Becker (drbecker@wcu.edu).

The committee will meet on:
September 4th at 4:00 p.m. (KL 202)
September 27th at 9:00 a.m. (KL 204D)
October 30th at 4:00 p.m. (KL 202)
November 25th at 2:00 p.m. (KL 202)
