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.


2013-2014 Meetings

The meeting of the joint EPC (when members of the two councils meet together) is pending for all months except November and May—the joint council will meet only when there are items that need to be voted upon by both councils. The Office of Curriculum Services will notify members of cancellation of the joint EPC meeting seven calendar days before the meeting. On the days that the joint council meets, the EPC Undergraduate meeting will begin immediately after conclusion of the joint EPC meeting.

All meetings will begin at 3:20 p.m. Days, rooms and locations and deadlines are specified below.
