The ENCORE by-laws state:
"The Curriculum Committee shall plan appropriate courses for each program term to support and advance the
educational goals of ENCORE."
How exactly is that task accomplished? How does an idea become a class?
Ideas for classes come from individual ENCORE members, committee members and potential instructors.
To make a request or propose a class, please submit a Class Proposal
Form. This form can also be obtained from curriculum committee members. These forms are used by
potential instructors to submit ideas to the curriculum committee. Class proposals are submitted via
email to a committee member. Proposals can be for fall, winter or spring terms. Some classes are ongoing for
more than one term; Science Exchange is an examples.
After review of the proposals by the curriculum committee, the process of scheduling days, times, and venues
is begun. Instructor's preferences are considered and an effort is made to meet their requests.
Anyone interested in presenting a class is urged to submit a proposal or to contact a
Committee member. Committee members are:
Reta Lindstrom, Chair
Anne Gant, Secretary
The committee meets the second Monday of the month at 1:00 pm.

ENCORE has purchased two headset loudspeaker systems for use by instructors/speakers who may need to "up the volume" for better communication. These should be especially useful for soft-voiced speakers, for outdoor use or for use in more noisy environments. The speakers will be available for "check out" from the Community Education Office 109D Towler Hall, Clatsop Community College. (Mary Kemhus or Evie Berger).
