How to Make Changes to Department and Catalog Pages

Making Changes to Department or Catalog Pages

How to make changes to undergraduate catalog content: 

  1. Different types of changes require different approvals; in many cases, those approvals must be secured prior to approval by the Undergraduate Policy Committee (UPC) of the Faculty Senate. The procedures for most curricular changes are captured on the relevant forms located on the Registrar’s Office website under faculty forms
  2. Changes to undergraduate program requirements and policies must be approved by UPC prior to inclusion in the catalog. Contact the Faculty Senate via Martha_Burns@uml.edu to request an item to be included on an upcoming UPC agenda. 
  3. Some changes require additional approval beyond the campus level prior to their being announced or included in the catalog. Please see pertinent information at the Department of Higher Education website.
  4. Departments wishing to update non-policy language on their department’s catalog landing page should contact Iraida_Buyan@uml.edu

How to make changes to graduate catalog content:

Different types of changes require different approvals; in many cases, those approvals must be secured prior to approval by the Graduate Policy and Affairs Committee (GPAC) of the Faculty Senate. The procedures for most curricular changes are captured on the relevant forms located on the Registrar’s Office website under faculty forms.
  2. Changes to graduate program requirements and policies must be approved by GPAC prior to inclusion in the catalog. Contact the Faculty Senate via Martha_Burns@uml.edu to request an item to be included on an upcoming GPAC agenda.

How to create or make changes to your department’s marketing content: 
  1. If the program content is not in the catalog, we cannot build a web page or market your program. The catalog content must always come first. See above “Catalog Content.” Once the catalog content is published, we can build/edit your dept. site. 
  2. Someone in your department must be trained in Tridion to make dept. web edits. Get training.
  3. Your changes will be approved within one business day - usually sooner - by the web content team. A web content team member will reach out with questions if the content is not on brand or grammatically incorrect. More about the approval process.
  4. If the changes are outside the realm of content and involve moving or unpublishing pages, other structural changes, or faculty bios (see list) you will need to submit a ticket to our work ticket system.
