Consider the impact of proposals on other courses, programs, departments, and educational partners. 
  2. Review and recommend the approval of new programs, which may include direction on program learning outcomes and course mapping, general education and related instruction, prerequisites and sequencing, and state definitions of degrees and certificates. Consider the impact of proposals on other courses, programs, departments, and educational partners. 
  3. Ensure that LBCC curriculum adheres to college, state, and federal policies and regional accreditation standards, and ensure that program and course outcomes are targeted to the current needs of students, educational partners, and employers.
