Educational Policies Council
The Educational Policies Council (EPC) is charged with the long-range academic planning and overall curriculum and policy guidelines for Kent State University. The council was established on 1 July 1967. Previously, there existed the University Council on Curriculum. Similar to its previous incarnation, the EPC was an independent group chaired by the provost. In 1970, under terms of the revised Faculty Senate charge and bylaws, the EPC went under Senate jurisdiction, co-chaired by the provost and chair of the Faculty Senate.
The EPC has oversight for curriculum issues, programs and policy proposals, library policies and facilities. More information on the council can be accessed in the University Policy Register (3342-2-07 Administrative policy and procedures regarding the Educational Policies Council).
