Committee on Educational Policy
( Final - Information )

EP.04.39 2003-2004 Annual Report

The 2003-2004 academic year has been a busy one for the Educational Policy Committee (EPC). The Committee dealt with many items relating to changes in academic units and curricula; handled proposals to rename departments and transfer one department into another college; reviewed two academic calendars; and also held many discussions on the Computation of Grade Point Average. As the table below shows, most proposals have been put into a form acceptable to and approved by the Senate. Other proposals have been considered by this committee and its recommendations reported to administration or other committees. Still other items are classified as “items still before the committee.” Three standing subcommittees were effectively chaired by Phillip Geil, Ruth V. Watkins and Guy Garnett. Abbas Aminmansour is commended for his service as Vice Chair. Ms. Diana Morris is commended for her effective staff support, without which the tasks of EPC would be much more difficult. Also, Senate changes to the Bylaws approved the addition of two new Ex officio members to the committee from the Graduate College and Continuing Education.
