Academic Affairs Committee
About the Committee
The Academic Affairs Committee is responsible for defining curricular policies of the Stockton campus of the University. It reviews all curricular proposals, including addition and deletion of courses, changes in course numbering, in credit hours, and in course descriptions. The committee reviews the establishment of new majors and all new degree programs. The committee also oversees the regularly scheduled reviews of academic programs. After such review the Academic Affairs Committee refers its recommendations to the Academic Council for recommendation to the Provost. The Academic Affairs Committee receives curricular proposals from the Provost, who receives them from the Deans of each school and college on the Stockton campus and the Dean of the Graduate School. The Provost receives such proposals only after they have been duly approved by the appropriate faculty committee of the school or college recommending the curricular change. Recommended changes in the graduate curriculum or programs must first be approved by the Graduate Studies Committee. The Academic Affairs Committee recommends the University calendar for the Stockton campus. (Faculty Handbook 6.2.1)
