Updates to the narrative section of the 2014-2015 University Bulletin (program descriptions, requirements, anything but the course descriptions section) were due to reviewers by Monday, March 17, according to Matt Baasten, associate provost.
While all schools and departments are set up differently, in most cases “reviewers” are deans or associate deans; updated bulletin sections are submitted to them by “editors,” who can be admin assistants, program specialists, department chairs, or whoever is tasked with bulletin updates in each program or office.
Reviewers must submit their sections for approval (approvers are Matt Baasten and Marc Covert, no need to submit separately) by Monday, March 31. The publication deadline for the online 2014-2015 Bulletin is Wednesday, May 14. A calendar with deadlines for bulletin updates through 2016-2017 can be found on the registrar’s webpage at http://www.up.edu/showimage/show.aspx?file=21431.
As in the past two academic years, all updates will be made through the Sitecore updating tool provided to UP by Smartcatalog. The Sitecore login page can be found at http://smartcatalogiq.com/sitecore/login. A user’s guide for bulletin updates is available at http://help.smartcatalogiq.com/en/iq-user-guide. There are also podcasts from the original Sitecore training sessions:
