Curriculum and General Education Committee

The Curriculum Committee plays a central role in the California Community Colleges. This role has expanded tremendously with the expanding role of faculty in community college governance and with the expanding demand for a curriculum which is flexible and responsive to the needs of our increasingly diverse student body. These demands have necessitated, now more than ever, that faculty understand the role of the Curriculum Committee, remain committed to high curriculum standards, and implement the college curriculum in an organized, efficient manner. Members of the Taft College Curriculum and General Education Committee are responsible for the development, renewal and approval of our curricula.
