UAC also monitors topics courses, independent studies, general education requirements and the classification of honors modules.
UAC typically meets from 2-4 p.m. on the first Friday of the month during the academic year. If there are items of business that have not been completed at the end of the scheduled meeting, the committee will continue to meet each Friday in succession until all agenda items are completed.
UAC is made up of one representative from each department and school in the College who is elected for a two-year term. The chair is elected by the committee for a one-year term from among all tenured faculty on the committee.
