General Education

In recent years, Academic Affairs has worked closely with the General Education Board. The charge of the General Education Board is to provide the process for adding classes to the general education lists and to maintain those lists. Academic Affairs is informed of such changes and consults with divisional representives before moving action and information items on to the Faculty Senate. For information about the General Education Board, contact Debra Winikates.


Academic Affairs

The Academic Affairs Committee reviews and advises IUPUC's Faculty Senate on matters like improving instruction, grades and grading, scholastic probation, academic dismissal and reinstatement, standards for admission, academic placement, the academic calendar, policies for scheduling classes, honors programs, general educational policy, general research policies, military training programs, and interdepartmental and interinstitutional research and educational programs. 

The committee also reviews and recommends action on all new undergraduate course offerings; reviews and recommends action on all new undergraduate programs or degrees prior to proper administrative action; reviews and recommends action on the deletion of any undergraduate course, program, or degree; and coordinates all undergraduate curricula at IUPUC, reserving for divisions the right to act on curricular matters and alterations of programs and degrees.
