Curriculum Management Tool (CMT)

What is CMT?  CMT is an integrated, comprehensive software application that supports the initiation, revision, and approval of curriculum. CMT automates the curriculum processes and helps us work more productively and cost-effectively.

Why do we need CMT?  As our college has grown, so has our curriculum.  Currently Sinclair Community College has more than 1,400 courses and more than 180 programs (degrees, options, certificates, and short-term technical certificates).  Every year a large number of different curriculum requests are initiated and approved.  The results of these curriculum changes need to be disseminated accurately to the college catalog, to the college website, and to both internal and external constituencies.  The database-driven, web-based design of CMT meets this need.

How will I use CMT?  If you’re a chairperson or chair designee, you’ll use CMT to enter new course requests, course revisions, program revisions, new certificate requests and new short-term technical certificate requests.  Also, you’ll have full access to monitor your requests and retrieve information about your curriculum.

If you’re a faculty member or a staff member, you’ll use CMT’s template download feature to  look up information about your department’s curriculum, view recently completed workflows, and access the rich online help menu.
