Due to timing issues related to course proposal deadlines, UGS and the Diversity Committee have modified their timeline as follows:
|2/1/16||Committees finalize certification process|
|3/7/16||Rubric and certification process are presented to the Faculty Senate and sent to faculty|
|12/1/16||Existing and new MC courses are submitted for approval via the 2016–2017 Course Approval Process.|
|Fall 2017||New courses take effect.|
As of 5 February 2016, the rubric has been finalized and the Committee on Diversity has drafted the guidelines that will be used in certifying multicultural courses. UGS is reviewing these guidelines and is working with the Diversity Committee to establish the certification process, which will be presented to the Faculty Senate as planned on 7 March 2016.
