Policy Committee Information


  • Academic Policy Committee (APC)
    The Academic Policy Committee is an expansion of the Chairs Committee.  The meetings are scheduled twice a semester, but the second meeting only occurs if any business remains from the first meeting of the semester. Because business was not concluded at the first meeting on September 13, 2011, APC will meet again on September 20.  The spring 2012 meetings are scheduled February 7 and February 14.

Each Vice President or Dean will establish at least a single committee to review and recommend Policy in their area of responsibility.  Vice Presidents and Deans may establish other advisory committees.  In addition, the Forum and Caucus may create committees to manage their internal business.  The President may establish ad hoc committees as necessary.


Each constituency—faculty, staff, and students—will elect one respective representative to each College Policy Committee.  In addition, the Forum and Caucus will appoint a member liaison to serve ex officio on each College Policy Committee.    The Vice President or Dean may add other members, either as voting or ex officio members.


Policy recommendations will normally be developed by and/or referred to one or more College Policy Committees.  Policies may also be established by the President when a situation requires immediate action.  Such policies should be reviewed through regular procedures as soon as possible.
