The Instruction Committee serves as the primary agent of the Faculty in implementing the curriculum and academic standards. The committee reviews course proposals, GER requests, and requests for non-standard course times; applications for student-designed majors and academic internships (where they are not offered by departments as 395/595/695 courses); and proposed changes to academic procedures and regulations.  A subcommittee on administration reviews academic petitions, academic progress, and applications for readmission to Lawrence.

Meeting Schedule (Fall 2021)

The Committee meets on Thursdays, 10:00-11:00 am.
Please submit items to the chair one week in advance of the meeting.
