Instructional resources

The Office of the Provost offers a variety of resources and support for faculty teaching courses and the the list below is a solid starting point for faculty and instructors.

University catalog

The University catalog lists all academic policies and procedures, including information on curriculum requirements, fees, four-year courses of study for all of the University's undergraduate majors, graduate and undergraduate course offerings and a listing of faculty members.

Course evaluations

All University courses are now evaluated through online course evaluation software called WDYT? (What Do You Think?) by CollegeNet, except for those offered by the School of Medicine and USAC, and courses that do not meet designated criteria (having to do, for example, with course enrollment) or that are not normally evaluated (such as independent studies).


Curriculog is used to automate the curriculum approval process. Current faculty and staff must log in with their NetID to review, edit, comment upon or submit new proposals. For questions or assistance, contact Thomas Brophy ( at Admissions & Records.

Syllabus requirements

The Provost requires an up-to-date syllabus for each course, in accordance with UAM 6501: Syllabus Policy. For all courses, faculty members are required to distribute a course syllabus to students by the end of the first week of class. Learn about about syllabus requirements, components and additional reminders about constructing a syllabus.

Instructional space scheduling

Colleges and departments are required to adhere to a set of rules when scheduling classes to ensure colleges are scheduling a broad range of course offerings and improving space utilization.

University Courses and Curricula Committee (UCCC)

The University Courses and Curricula Committee (UCCC) is charged with reviewing proposals for changes in courses and curricula requested by academic departments, divisions, schools, and colleges.
