Committee on Academic Policy and Planning

 

Primary focus areas, as detailed in the bylaws:

  • issues of academic philosophy, standards, and conduct as well as the appropriateness of present and proposed programs, degrees, majors, options, and concentrations.
  • faculty-student relations.
  • governance of the University.
  • other matters of academic policy.

 

AP&P Community Agreements for Engagement:

The Senate Academic Policy and Planning Committee is committed to shared governance based on trust and rooted in SDSU’s three key principles: respect, communication, and responsibility.

We agree to follow these guiding principles when conducting our work. We will: 

  • focus the purpose of our meetings on our approved agenda; and
  • engage with each other respectfully and reject biased or harassing speech, whether via email, virtual chat, or conversation; and
  • honor the process of developing thoughtful policy that considers unintended consequences; in particular we will avoid sharing beyond this committee drafts of in-progress items that are not ready for broader review; and 
  • represent our respective units/constituencies rather than our individual or disciplinary interests; and
  • approach our work thoughtfully and deliberatively.

This Committee has a membership of 15:

Ex-officio members (3):

  • Provost & Senior Vice President of Academic Affairs or designee
  • Associate Vice President for Faculty Advancement & Student Success
  • Dean of the College of Graduate Studies

Appointed members (12):

  • nine faculty
    • one from each of the seven Colleges, the Library, & Imperial Valley
      • two of whom must be elected Senators
  • one staff member
  • two students
