The purpose shall be to review all curriculum change requests and, if applicable, make appropriate recommendations to the VPI. The committee will seek consensus on curriculum changes that best serve student interests in accordance with the Panola College mission statement and within the requirements of relevant accrediting bodies. The committee will serve as a single channel of communication for all curriculum changes (Workforce Education Course Manual or Academic Course Guide Manual) across Panola College. Dissemination of information will flow from the Curriculum and Instruction Committee to appropriate offices including the Vice President of Instruction, Registrar, advising, financial aid, institutional effectiveness, library, deans, and department chairs.
