The function of the Educational Policy Committee (EPC) is to initiate, receive, review, and enact policies or recommend proposed changes of educational policies to the full faculty of arts, sciences and engineering that have direct bearing on the broad patterns of education within the jurisdiction of the arts, sciences and engineering faculty as a whole.
The Educational Policy Committee consists of fifteen or more members, of whom seven must be members of the faculty, one graduate student designated by the Graduate Student Council, up to three undergraduate students designated by the TCU Senate, and four may be members of the administration, including ex officio members or their designees, without voting privileges: the president of the university, the dean of the School of Arts and Sciences, the dean of the School of Engineering, the dean of the Division of Undergraduate and Graduate Students, an associate dean of the Undergraduate Education, the registrar, and a representative from the AS&E Executive Committee. Members are appointed to a five-year term. Full-time voting-eligible faculty members are able to serve on this committee.
Committee members attend one or two meetings per month, which are typically 90 minutes long. Notes are circulated via email on the content of the discussions. This committee is appropriate for tenure-track faculty members.
For the first time at Tufts in the Fall 2012 semester uniform student course evaluations will be administered online via TRUNK. The plan that will be implemented has been formulated by the EPC subcommittee on Student Course Evaluations in consultation with the AS&E administration and UIT. The plan for evaluations details the schedule and online implementation. The subcommittee has also requested time at an upcoming AS&E faculty meeting to answer questions about the online evaluations.
