(Final - Information)

EP.05.30 2004-2005 Annual Report

The 2004-2005 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 two proposals to rename departments and transfer one department into another; and reviewed Guidelines for the Academic Calendar. 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 Bettina Francis, Phillip Geil, and Joe Goldberg. Ms. Diana Morris is commended for her effective staff support, without which the tasks of EPC would be much more difficult.
