The image you see above is a screenshot from next semester’s class schedule, and we think it might just be evidence of some bureaucratic aggressiveness.
CPC stands for the Curriculum Policy Committee*, which is the standing faculty committee that approves any change to, well, curricular policy. Practically, what that means is that they approve new courses, as well as broader policy changes and new majors.
Professors are only mere mortals, and mere mortals are sometimes late. Which means that sometimes course descriptions are late. Now, it seems, that CPC has finally had enough. So much so that this staid committee (or someone in the registrar’s office) has resorted to public, all-caps shaming to make it happen.
Or the online schedule of courses isn’t finished yet and this is basically a rough draft. But intrigue is so much more fun.
*Disclosure: Last year, I served as one of two student representatives on CPC.
