Curricular Affairs

Welcome to the Office of Curricular Affairs!

Curricular Affairs works together with academic units and committees to advance the mission of the University of Arizona through continuous improvement of academic offerings.

We collaborate with faculty and staff to improve how we educate and innovate at the University of Arizona in some of the following ways:

  • Providing reports to the Arizona Board of Regents regarding Academic Organizations, Academic Program Review and Curriculum
  • Partnering with Online & Distance Education and Arizona International to extend the UA’s reach through new domestic and global locations.
  • Facilitating requests for course catalog changes, including new courses, course modifications and inactivations
  • Launching new academic programs and modifying existing academic programs
  • Verifying that proposed curricular changes meet University and ABOR policy as well as WSCUC accreditation standards
  • Assisting faculty with handbook and website review during Academic Program Review
