Moratorium Ends for Starting New Curriculum Proposals

The moratorium for new course and curriculum proposals has ended. Users are now able to start new course and curriculum proposals in Curriculog. Please note that there will be a short moratorium each summer for starting new proposals as we transition from one catalog year to another. This will have no effect on proposals already started. Users may continue to use Curriculog, but will not be able to start a new proposal during a moratorium. For questions, please contact Matt Wyse, Curriculog Administrator and Faculty Governance Assistant.
