NYU Steinhardt has school-wide requirements for all courses. When developing a new course syllabus, faculty must include: Course Name and Description, Units/Credits and Hours, Student Learning Outcomes, Required/Recommended Reading and Assignments, Grading Scale and Evaluation Rubric(s), Weekly Schedule (with assignment due dates), and Mental Health, Disability and Academic Integrity Statements.
New faculty courses are approved by the Committee on Courses and Programs (CCP), which consists of representatives from each department at Steinhardt. A new course may be proposed by any full-time tenured, tenure-track, or clinical faculty member.
The Office of Institutional Effectiveness oversees the submission of all new undergraduate and graduate program proposals, as well as any program revisions.
