When does the L&S Academic Planning Council meet? What are the deadlines? Whom do I contact about APC agenda items?
Regular meetings of the L&S APC are held every other Tuesday during Fall and Spring terms, when classes are in session.
The L&S Academic Planning Council meets twice monthly during Spring and Fall terms. Meetings are held on the first and third Tuesday of the month, usually from 1:00 - 2:30 p.m., in the Dean's Conference Room (101 South Hall). Once each semester, the L&S APC will meet jointly with the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences Academic Planning Council, for purposes of discussing matters related to academic programs for which both colleges have oversight responsibilities. These meetings are longer, to allow each council to reconvene separately to attend to other business if necessary. (See L&S Academic Planning Council Meeting - Agendas and Notes
for meeting dates, times, locations, and agendas.)
To allow for agenda planning and review of materials prior to distribution, the deadline for submission of agenda items ordinarily falls two weeks prior to the meeting. Please note, however, that proposals that come before the council generally touch upon complex issues and often require research and consultation within L&S administration and, in some cases, at the campus level. If additional consultation is needed, presentation to the APC will be delayed until questions are satisfied and issues resolved. Please contact the Assistant Dean for Academic Planning for more information about deadlines.
Dean Scholz chairs the Council, but in most cases, the best contact is the Associate Dean in the relevant program area. Since Elaine M. Klein (Assistant Dean for Academic Planning) works with the Dean and Associate Deans to set the agenda, it is most useful if she is also copied on messages.
