The Academic Affairs Committee considers and recommends to the Faculty Senate actions on requests for additions, deletions, or changes in undergraduate courses or programs. The committee also considers and notifies the senate of minor changes in courses, such as course titles, descriptions, or credit hours. These minor changes do not require senate approval, but are submitted to the senate for notification. When considering additions, deletions, or changes to courses, special attention will be given to avoiding duplication or obsolescence. The committee will also evaluate educational policies, admission standards, and new programs of instruction.
