Curriculum Committee is a Standing Committee of the MSCA governance structure, whose mission and composition is set by the MSCA contract. After receiving recommendations regarding the general coordination and improvement of academic programs from the All University Committee (AUC), the Curriculum Committee performs an in depth review, consults with appropriate departments, and then responds to AUC with its own recommendation.

(2) deletion/addition to or changes in the curriculum;
