Purpose of Committee
The Queuing Committee is a committee of the Vice Provost, Open Learning, and is tasked with recommending the prioritization of Open Learning new courses and major course revisions approved by Open Learning Leadership Team for development and delivery and approved by appropriate faculty council(s)for development.
