Curriculum and Course Review

The processes and approvals used by the school to add, change, or delete courses, specializations, and other curricula are described here.

When a program is submitting a new course for consideration to be added permanently to the curriculum, faculty should use this cover sheet to submit it.  

When a program is submitting revisions to an existing course, faculty should use this cover sheet to submit it.

Enrichment Funding for Courses

As of 2018, New Brunswick's Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs no longer offers funding for enrichment activities for classes.  The Dean's office is now providing such support internally for SC&I classes at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The process for enrichment funding is:

  1. An instructor should complete the funding application form (linked here), and submit it to their chair for approval.
  2. If the department chair approves, he/she should submit the signed form to the Associate Dean for Programs for final approval.
  3. If the request is approved, the instructor will be notified. The instructor must then submit (a) the signed approval form, (b) a detailed itinerary, and (c) the roster of students in the class to Matt Spaventa in the Office of Risk Management to obtain a waiver form for students to sign. You can contact Matt at spaventa@finance.rutgers.edu or (848) 932-3008.
  4. The instructor should distribute the form to the students in the class and receive back signed forms from all students who will be going on the trip.
  5. Any student who does not sign the form should not go on the field trip.
  6. The instructor must email a scan of the signed forms to Matt Spaventa in advance of the trip.
  7. The instructor should give the original forms to a faculty support staff member. Those forms must be retained by SC&I for seven years.

Taking a trip with a class

The university offers this advice page for those considering a field trip with a class.

If you are taking a trip with your class, please provide an itinerary to your program director.

Please have your students complete one of the appropriate waivers for your trip:

Field Trips with Students and Other Enriching Classroom Experiences (University Support)

Office of Undergraduate Education in New Brunswick will provide financial support for class trips and other activities that support learning.  For information and to apply for the funds, please visit their site. 

If you do travel with students, you need to have them complete a trip waiver.  The appropriate waiver depends on the mode of transportation.
