what is kuali curriculum management?

Kuali Curriculum Management helps institutions build and maintain a permanent, canonical record of all versions of its programs, courses, and other types of learning experiences (e.g. service-learning projects, apprenticeships, competency-based learning, and prior learning assessments).  Kuali is now the only way to propose new courses at URI.  

Many common Kuali and curriculum-related questions are answered on the FAQ page

program closures and organizational unit of change proposals

Proposals for Program Closure or Organizational Unit of Change Form are not yet captured in the CM system. Contact uri_curriculum@uri.edu to request and submit the necessary form. 




Use for program closure. Any existing program that would require review by the Board of Trustees should be reviewed by the BOT Academic Affairs and Research Committee. 




Use for organizational changes to traditional academic units (departments, divisions, schools, and colleges) and changes to nontraditional academic units that are created to implement combinations of academic, research, outreach, and/or service activities that cannot ordinarily be accommodated within existing departmental (nontraditional academic units are typically called centers, agencies, institutes or outreach centers).
