      1. The CAE is committed to engaging students and faculty in transformative educational experiences in, aeronautics, applied engineering, and engineering; in research and development in areas of interest to the college; and in the nurturing of leaders in sustainable approaches to address economic and quality of life issues.
    2. Goals and Objectives of the College

      1. The primary objectives of the College are to:
        1. Create an academic environment which promotes the intellectual and professional development of students and faculty;
        2. Develop and maintain a commitment to scholarly activity in research, graduate education, and undergraduate education which is commensurate with the goals and mission of Kent State University;
        3. Provide programs for all students which meet the educational, scientific, and technological demands of the disciplines represented in the College;
        4. Offer courses in cognate academic disciplines and professional fields which provide the necessary base for the career goals of students and faculty; and,
        5. Provide the public with service commensurate with a University.
      2. Implicit in these objectives are the following:
        1.  A responsibility as teachers, which includes but is not limited to, educating undergraduate and graduate students and providing continuing education while promoting and clarifying the role and philosophy of education;
        2. A commitment to research and scholarship, defined as creating and maintaining an intellectual environment, and the expansion and advancement of knowledge and understanding in the discipline; 
        3. Service to the University and to the general public. This service unifies and clarifies the role of the University in the local community, in the State of Ohio, and in the nation, and is valued within the College and the University.
  2. Students

    Students, both undergraduate and graduate, are of primary concern to all faculty members, and students' academic needs are of primary importance to the College. Student participation in various College committees may include the College Curriculum Committee (CCC), the Graduate Faculty Advisory Committee (GFAC), and those ad hoc committees where students' viewpoints are useful and appropriate. Student appointments to committees are made by the Dean in consultation with the CAC and the faculty members involved in and affected by a specific committee's work.

    1. Advising

      1. Faculty are required to advise and counsel undergraduate and graduate students on academic matters. General advising at the undergraduate level is coordinated by the Undergraduate Advisor who serves as the College representative for College and University functions related to undergraduate programs and activities. Individual faculty members are responsible for providing academic counseling to undergraduate students assigned to them and to other undergraduate students who seek such advice, as needed. Student advising at the graduate level is conducted by the student's assigned "specialization area” faculty advisor and, as applicable, the student’s thesis committee members.
    2. Student Grievances and Academic Complaints

      1. The University’s policies and procedures which govern student grievances and student academic complaints are included in the University Policy Register.

    3. Transfer Credit Procedure

      1. The Academic Program Area Coordinator/Director is responsible for the evaluation of undergraduate transfer credit and may consult with a faculty member who teaches the specific course or courses at issue. Questions of transfer credit for other subject areas should be referred to the College office. 
      2. Graduate transfer credit is evaluated according to the process described in the University’s current Graduate Catalog. Both master's and doctoral transfer credit may be accepted if the criteria are met, and the Graduate Coordinator and the Dean approve the transfer credit.
    4. Privacy of Student Records

      1. The Dean is responsible for ensuring that all members of the College comply with all laws and University Policies which govern the privacy of student education records, including but not limited to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). These regulations require, among other things, that faculty members keep thorough academic records and forbid the posting of grades by name, social security number or any other system which might identify a student with her/his education record. For further information, contact the University’s Office of Legal Affairs.
    5. Student Surveys

      2.     All courses are evaluated each semester, including summer sessions, using the approved Student Survey of Instruction (SSI). The policies and procedures for conducting the SSI are specified in the University Policy Register.

  3. Faculty Grievance and Appeal Procedure

    1. Informal Procedure

      1. The faculty member and the Dean of the CAE shall attempt to resolve issue(s) informally before proceeding to a formal grievance.
      2. Any faculty member who believes that he/she may have a grievance is required, before initiating a formal grievance or appeal, to talk with the Dean about any issue(s) of concern. The Dean may seek the advice and recommendation of individual faculty members or faculty advisory groups in seeking informal resolution of a dispute or complaint. 
      3. Faculty grievances that are not directly related to the terms or conditions of employment and are not academic appeals are appropriately addressed within the College, whenever possible. The Dean and/or faculty members will initiate an informal dialogue with all parties involved in a dispute and strive to reach a resolution agreeable to all parties.

      1. Kent State University maintains a formal Grievance and Appeals Procedure established by the Collective Bargaining Agreements between Kent State University and the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). 
      2. Formal procedures for addressing grievances affecting the terms and conditions of employment of faculty are described in the applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement. Disputes involving substantive academic judgments are subject to a separate academic appeals process governed by the applicable Collective Bargaining Agreement.

        3. Each undergraduate course offered by the CAE is directly supervised by an Academic Program Area that is responsible for course development, review, revisions, and curricular changes. The Academic Program Area will establish, define, and maintain Basic Data Sheet (BDS) forms, course objectives, course content, course prerequisites, appropriate delivery methodology, and all other pertinent curricular issues in accordance with the needs of the College's undergraduate curriculum.

Faculty who initiate and/or develop curricular changes should refer to the Curriculum Guidelines document, available through the Curriculum Serves web site, for guidance on the requirements, procedures, and policies associated with specific types of curricular proposals.
        2. Individual full-time faculty members may develop new or revised program-specific courses and curriculum proposals. Undergraduate curricular changes may be proposed by any full-time CAE faculty member for consideration by the CCC.

If the CCC approves a proposal that requires minor revision, the proposal must be revised, the new version must be approved by the Academic Program Area Coordinator/Director, and the “final” proposal must be submitted by the Coordinator/Director to the CCC Chair. 
        6. All required documentation for approved proposals shall be provided to the Dean's Office by the CCC Chair. 
        7. The Dean's office will process and forward CCC curricular recommendations to University officials and governance bodies as appropriate, or return them to the CCC with suggestions for revision.
