Undergraduate Policy and Curriculum Committee (UPCC)

Duties and Responsibilities

The UPCC is a standing committee of the Faculty Senate that reports to the Faculty Senate on undergraduate policy and curriculum matters at each meeting of the full Faculty Senate. A subcommittee of the Undergraduate Policy and Curriculum Committee acts as the Undergraduate Course Review Committee and reviews all undergraduate course change requests.

The UPCC is to study, review, and provide recommendations on undergraduate policies, instruction, and standards; to study, review, and provide recommendations on university-wide undergraduate degree requirements including the General Education Program (GEP), foreign language requirements or proficiency, admission standards, instruction, and baccalaureate academic honors; to review and make recommendations on all proposals for planning or implementation of new undergraduate degree programs, minors, and elimination of existing programs, which, in turn, are submitted to the Office of Academic Affairs prior to submission to the Board of Trustees for final approval; to review the SUS Five Year Program Review reports and make recommendations on any policy or curriculum changes which might appear warranted based on the program reviews; to review all matters referred by the Undergraduate Course Review Committee; and to transmit its recommendations to the Faculty Senate Steering Committee, which normally submits them to the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
