The Educational Policies Council (EPC) is a Faculty Senate body responsible for long-range academic planning for Kent State University. The council is co-chaired by the provost and the chair of the Faculty Senate. Click here for more information on EPC membership. The EPC has oversight for curriculum issues, programs and policy proposals, library policies and facilities.
More information on the EPC can be accessed in the University Policy Register (3342-2-07 Administrative policy and procedures regarding the Educational Policies Council).
Members of the EPC meet minimum three times an academic year to review and vote on the issues and proposals. Below are each meeting's agenda and minutes. Agendas are posted online the Monday (one week) before the meeting date.
The two councils—Undergraduate EPC and Graduate EPC—will meet jointly each month for academic year 2014-15 and alternate the agenda of who goes first. For months where one council may not have agenda, those council members are not required to attend the meeting.
All meetings will begin at 3:20 p.m. in the Governance Chambers, second floor of the Kent Student Center.
