ACADEMIC PROGRAMS COMMITTEE
Annual Report
(2014-2015)
Submitted by Dr. Michael Bovenzi, Chairperson

 

 

The Academic Programs Committee (APC) shall review curricular proposals for the creation, deletion,
or modification of academic programs and courses. In their review of curricular proposals, members of the committee shall determine (1) whether the degree program or course is academically appropriate in a particular college or department, (2) whether there is overlap, repetition, or redundancy in the creation of new degree programs or courses, and (3) whether all relevant parties have been consulted and had the chance to review the proposal. Matters of presentation of academic curricula – the UNF Catalog, for instance -- are the responsibility
of Academic Affairs; matters of compliance with accreditation standards are the responsibility of the relevant department/ college and/or Academic Affairs.  Representatives to the APC Committee shall review all proposals
in a timely manner and work with departments to formulate final submissions.”

 

The Academic Programs Committee is responsible for reviewing and recommending policies regarding degree requirements, academic programs and major changes in the University’s curriculum.
