2018 Reaffirmation Teams - Programs, Curriculum Instruction Committee

Programs, Curriculum Instruction Committee

This committee's focus is to ascertain the University's compliance with the SACSCOC goals associated with general, undergraduate, and graduate education. This compliance requires an examination of the education components as a part of the undergraduate and graduate programs, but also focuses on the role of on- and off-campus programming as a contributor to student success. This committee also focuses on the evaluation of transfer coursework and the academic policies that contribute to "good educational practice."
