Educational Policy Advisory Committee
The EPAC advises the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs about most curricular activities. These activities include, but are not limited to, proposals for new programs, courses, and major course revisions. EPAC review of proposed curricular changes takes place subsequent to college, and department or school reviews.
Major revisions of existing courses include changes in level, credit hours, purpose and scope, content, or method of instruction. When submitting curriculum changes or new courses proposals, first examine the schedules for all committees.
A campus-wide perspective is central to EPAC's review process. The review is intended to accomplish the following purposes:
- Ensure that proposed changes are in accord with university-wide objectives and priorities as identified in the role and mission statement and relevant planning documents;
- Prevent the unnecessary duplication and proliferation of curricular offerings; and
- Consider possible impacts of proposed curricular changes on other units and programs.
When reviewing curricular changes, EPAC members consider these changes in accordance with review guidelines designed to ensure adherence to university objectives and priorities.
