District Technical Review Committee
The Technical Review Committee (TRC) is a subcommittee of the District Curriculum Committee. Its voting members are the three college curriculum chairs. Nonvoting members include the TRC chair (an appointment made by the three curriculum chairs), an RCCD academic administrator appointed by the RCCD Chancellor, and the district Instructional Support Coordinators. Meetings are on the first and third Tuesday of each month during the Fall and Spring semesters.
The TRC acts as an advisory committee to the three college curriculum committees and the RCCD District Curriculum Committee. The main function of the TRC is to ensure that curricular proposals are complete and ready for review by the curriculum committees. The TRC approves the technical aspects of the curricular proposal, not the curriculum itself. The committee operates on the basis of consensus decision making.
The role of the technical review committee is to:
- Ensure course outlines and curricular proposals are complete and ready for review and approval by the college curriculum committees.
- Ensure that requirements that appear in law, regulation, and/or accreditation standards are adhered to by the curriculum proposal.
- Provide information, training, and support on the curriculum management system and other logistical matters pertaining to the curriculum process.
- Address concerns regarding district-wide curriculum issues.
