The function of the Board of the Experimental College (Ex College Board) is to guide the policy and educational programming of the Experimental College, with particular focus on the innovation, teaching methods, curricular benefits and diversity of courses that the Experimental College offers each semester (typically, this includes twenty to twenty-five full-credit courses). The Ex College Board is responsible for selecting courses for the following semester. The board also considers general policy and direction, and often offers one or two events each year that relate to its mission.
Members include five full-time faculty members, preferably representing a range of disciplines and interests, and five undergraduate students. Student applications are screened by the board, and faculty members are solicited and reviewed by the Ex College staff and chair. Members serve for a two-year term.
The board meets once per month for the first several months each semester, then meets twice in fairly rapid succession to review and approve courses for the next term. Course proposals number 120 to 150 and review is allocated among board members, so that each member reads no more than about fifteen proposals. This committee is open to all full-time voting-eligible faculty members, including professors of the practice, lecturers, and senior lecturers interested in new or experimental approaches to undergraduate education.
