Academic Council

Function:  Academic Council supports the academic function at the College.  In this capacity, it provides support for academic programming and makes recommendations on practices, processes, and Policies and Procedures that pertain to curriculum, assessment, and other academic matters. 

Structure:  Academic Council is comprised of 14 standing committees that address the academic function of the College:  Academic Pathways; Academic Rules and Policies; Assessment; Curriculum; Delaware Campus; Digital Learning; Diversity and Inclusion; Dual Enrollment; Faculty Entry, Training, and Professional Development; Honors; Instructional Success; Promotion and Tenure Process; Service Learning; and Student Support.   Up to 12 faculty members serve on each of these 14 standing committees, with the goal of equal representation from both the Division of Arts and Sciences and the Divisions of Health and Human Services and Business, Engineering, and Technologies.  Each committee has two Co-Chairs, one representing A&S and one representing either HHS or BET.

Process:  The Academic Council committees discuss issues submitted by faculty or others.  After committee discussion, these issues are deliberated and recommended upon at a formal meeting of Academic Council Co-Chairs. During this stage of consideration, the faculty union has an opportunity to review and comment upon the proposed recommendation.  Recommendations made by Academic Council are submitted for consideration to the Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs.
