About the Curriculum Department

The development and revision of curriculum is a continuous, on-going process that reflects the changing needs of the students and the community. To ensure quality, effectiveness, and efficiency, planning at MATC is an institution-wide endeavor, based on the concepts of shared governance and continuous quality improvement. In the development and delivery of its educational offerings, MATC follows the guidelines of the Wisconsin Technical College System.

Instructional managers and faculty play important roles in the process of curriculum development and modification. In addition to activities at the departmental level, participation in the process includes interaction with the program’s advisory committee, membership on the divisional curriculum team, and/or membership on the district-wide Curriculum, Learning, and Assessment Core Committee (CLA). Results of these activities are shared through minutes and other communications to the wider audience of the college community.
