Educational Policy Committee (Ed Pol)

Ed Pol is one of the most important faculty committees in large part because it is charged with maintaining Wheaton’s curriculum. All new courses, faculty/student initiated connections, reforms to majors/minors and any other changes to the academic structure come before the committee. Its members include: five faculty members with one faculty serving as chair, the Provost, the President and two students.

Connections Sub-Committee

The sub-committee has been tasked with reviewing all student initiated connections and making recommendations to the full committee. Its members include: three faculty members and one student.

Committee on Admission and Academic Standing (CAAS)

CAAS has a multivaried purpose. While it serves primarily as the “committee on exceptions” since it deals with students petitioning to: study abroad with a GPA below Wheaton’s standard, drop a course or take it pass/fail past the deadline, or anyother of a variety of petitions. The committee also awards grant money to students and helps screen Fulbright Scholar applicants. It’s members include the Dean of Students, the Registrar, three-four faculty members, a representative from Academic Advising and two students.
