The Curriculum and Academic Policies Council (CAPC), serves two curricular purposes:

  1. To develop, revise, and recommend academic creation of new, existing or elimination of existing academic programs sent by faculty.
  2. To develop, revise, and recommend academic policies.

These purposes are carried out in a legislative assembly (comprised of elected faculty, elected or appointed students and administration) that recommends to the Academic Vice President and Provost curricular and academic policy matters.

CAPC exists as a shared governance body, functioning under the authority of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the System, APSCUF, and the System Board of Governors.
