CIM/Catalog

This page includes links and information about the Curriculum Management (CIM) and Catalog system as well as the related deadlines for updates to the 2018-2019 Academic Catalog Cycle. 

CIM system - Courseleaf's CIM system is used by the academic program's Graduate Director (or designee) to manage individual courses and to manage the degree and certificate programs offered. 

There are two main parts to the CIM system (links included with each):

  • CIM Course - This is where you submit a new course proposal, edit an existing course or delete a course using this link.
  • CIM Program - This is where you submit a new program (degree or certificate) or edit (i.e. degree requirements) an existing program using this link. 
  • Approve CIM Course or CIM Program - When you are ready to approve your catalog pages, go to this link and search for your role.
    • The Role defaults to your name, but you must search for your Catalog Role (usually including your department name).
    • Example role: Preventive Medicine Approver
    • Please contact Val Abbott if you do not know your role name

NOTE: Designated users must use their KU-Lawrence username and password to gain access. 

Catalog - Short for Academic Catalog, this is another part of the Courseleaf system that is populated by the content from CIM Course and CIM Program. Each department's content for their respective programs serves as the academic program contract with the student. 

  • Edit Catalog pages - This is also known as Next Catalog. You can access the academic catalog and make your edits with this link. Even if it is not your step in the catalog editing workflow, you can still view the catalog at any time.
    • This will open in the first few days of September and close in early January for the catalog update cycle.
  • Approve Catalog pages - When you are ready to approve your catalog pages, go to this link and search for your role.
    • The Role defaults to your name, but you must search for your Catalog Role title (usually including your department name).
    • Example role: Preventive Medicine Approver
    • Please contact Val Abbott if you do not know your role name
  • Previous academic catalogs - Archives of catalogs from 2003 to present.

NOTE: Designated users must use their KU-Lawrence username and password to gain access.
