Liberal Arts & Sciences Council

Group of studentsThe Liberal Arts and Sciences Council is a body appointed by the All University Committee (AUC) and charged by the administration to research, plan and implement alterations to the Liberal Arts and Sciences program. While it has no authority to authorize policy, it recommends policy to the AUC. As part of the course approval process, the LA&S Council makes recommendations concerning LA&S requests for courses—whether a course should receive cluster approval or broad LA&S approval. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the AUC Curriculum Committee and of the AUC itself to approve LA&S course requests. It is also part of the Council's responsibilities to plan and implement the assessment process for the LA&S core program.
