Judgment of Compliance
The University of West Georgia Academic Officers assign responsibility for program coordination and curriculum development to persons academically qualified in the field. Each degree program and curricular area (defined as a minor or certificate in which a degree is not granted) is assigned a director who fills this role. The qualifications of each Program Director and the degree or area for which they have stewardship are listed in the table linked below. Additionally, the University of West Georgia University Faculty Senate includes committees related to program curriculum development and review. These committees are titled the Undergraduate Academic Programs Committee (with a subcommittee titled the General Education Committee), and the Committee on Graduate Studies.
