APC self-study report completed

At least once every five years the Academic Planning Council completes a self-study to review the Council’s structure and functions to assess its effectiveness as a faculty voice and its compliance with Faculty Policies and Procedures. During the 2020-2021 academic year the Academic Planning Council self-study subcommittee completed its self-study report and the APC approved the report as complete. Recommendations in the report include:

  • Retain the current structure of proportional representation to APC among faculty, divisions, Extension and staff with the rotational schedule updated to reflect department mergers, etc.
  • More clearly communicate APC activities back to departments.
  • Establish policies for selecting substitute representatives when elected representatives cannot attend APC meetings.
  • Define and clarify the role of APC as an advisory body to decision-making in the College.
