Curriculum Management System
The online Curriculum Management System is used for submitting, reviewing, tracking, and approving course and program proposals for the Cal Poly Catalog. The software is commercially known as CourseLeaf CIM from Leepfrog Technologies and interfaces with the University’s PeopleSoft Student Administration system and the content management system for the Cal Poly Catalog.
All course and program proposals for the Cal Poly catalog are submitted in the Curriculum Management system with the following exceptions:
- Form for Selected Topics course proposals.
- For new degree programs or proposal to discontinue degree programs, contact the Academic Programs and Planning Office.
Who has Access to the Curriculum Management System?
All faculty have access to the online system. In the event a faculty member is not in the system please e-mail email@example.com to request access.
In general, staff do not have access to the system because faculty have responsibility for the curriculum. If a staff member requires access, their department chair/head or associate dean may request access by sending an email to the catalog and access may be granted temporarily on a case by case basis.
