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.

College and University Resources

Each program in the College has an advisory board with appointed members, organized by the program director/coordinator. Program advisory boards meet at minimum once per year to provide support and advise to program faculty. Board members also serve as ambassadors to the programs by connecting programs with external parties and share information regarding developmenta and news in the program field.

College of Education and Allied Professions Partnership Forum Event
Each spring the College hosts a "Partnership Forum" event, inviting each program advisory board for individual meetings and a combined group dinner.

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 chair for 2021-2022 is Dr. David Solomon(dsolomon@wcu.edu).

The committee is scheduled to meet on:
August 30, 2021
September 27, 2021
October 25, 2021
December 6, 2021
January 31, 2022
February 28, 2022
