Communication Literacy Requirement Timeline

September 2018
Curriculog will be used to confirm or make changes to degree program's CL courses and narratives. Degree program coordinators can learn more about Curriculog. Updates to programs' CL courses and plans will be routed through Curriculog for publication in subsequent academic catalogs. Assessment of and reporting on programs' CL plans will be housed in Nuventive Improve and will be included in degree programs' annual reports related to programmatic learning outcomes.

August 2018
The Center for Global Communication (CGC) and the Communication Advisory Committee (CAC) request that degree program coordinators input assessment data for 2018-2019 and future CL plans into Nuventive Improve (previously TracDat). The target deadline for submitting 2018-2019 program level CL results into Nuventive Improve is October 2019, therefore all degree-granting undergraduate programs should include at least one program-level outcome that relates to communication in their October 2018 Nuventive report.

March 2, 2018
All degree-granting undergraduate programs submit their 2018-2019 CL plans on or before March 2, 2018.

January 8, 2018
Department Chairs receive a letter with the CL plans for the undergraduate degree program(s) in their respective department or school to review and decide to either retain or revise the existing narrative and course requirements.

Fall 2017
Communication Literacy plans implemented campus wide.

February 6, 2017
All degree-granting undergraduate programs submit their 2017-2018 CL plans on or before February 6, 2017.

Dec. 8, 2016
The Communication Advisory Committee (CAC) reconsidered requests from faculty members that core curriculum courses be eligible for inclusion in a program's CL plan. The CAC approved core curriculum courses for inclusion, so long as any program using a core course in its CL plan includes three additional CL courses beyond the core course in that plan. There is no requirement that CL courses be a minimum of three credit hours.
