Educational Policies and Standards Committee (EPSC)
The Educational Policies and Standards Committee studies educational issues of concern to the Academic Senate and is the standing committee that recommends educational policies to the Executive Committee. The Committee provides a forum for high‐level discussion and development of Academic Senate Policy, including its effect on faculty and students. The discussions include the viewpoint of students, CIOs and union representatives.
The EPSC researches issues as required and writes background and/or position papers where appropriate. The Committee may pass general recommendations to other Senate committees, or work with them on more detailed implementation or technical issues. New or revised educational policies of the Academic Senate pass through the EPSC. These may include policies to be implemented locally or at the state level, suggested positions on proposed policies or changes in existing policies, and responses to assignments given by the Senate President or Executive Committee.
