Oversight Committee for the Core Curriculum (OCCC), Faculty Co-Chair, 2016-2017 - Karen Harker
The Oversight Committee for the Core Curriculum is a faculty senate committee consisting of 11 voting members. A majority of the voting members are tenured faculty. The committee has one representative from each faculty senate group, as well as 3 at-large members. A faculty co-chair serves as the coordinator of the group. The office of the Provost designates an administrative co-chair of the committee who will serve as an ex-officio non-voting member, which is currently the Director of the Core. The committee meets monthly between September and December, and February and May. The committee oversees Core courses through the process of inception, change, and removal from the Core. The committee uses the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board guidelines when conducting oversight of the Core courses. The minutes and general operation of the committee can be found on the OCCC faculty senate website.
