Academic Committee (AC)

The University Academic Committee (AC) is the university-level governance committee charged to review and recommend newly-proposed academic policies, procedures, and programs to the Provost that impact the university’s teaching, research, and service missions. The committee is responsible for making recommendations to the Provost regarding the university’s academic priorities and monitoring of re-accreditation visits by the Higher Learning Commission of NCA. It seeks the input of the Fiscal Coordinating Committee when appropriate.

The AC is comprised of the following:

  • Chair appointed by Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost
  • Four faculty senators: the Chair of the Academic Affairs Committee, a regional college representative, a Budget and Priorities Committee member, and the Faculty Chair or designee
  • Two student trustees
  • Associate Dean of the Graduate School
  • A Dean and three Associate Deans appointed by the Senior Vice President and Provost
  • Two faculty from the Academic Health Center colleges
  • Two representatives from the Senior Vice president and Provost
  • A representative from the Provost's Office of Business and Financial Affairs
