Educational Policy and Planning Committee

The Educational Policy and Planning Committee (EPPC) coordinates educational policy across the schools that make up Arts & Sciences. Each semester, the EPPC sets its agenda in consultation with the Executive Committee of the Arts & Sciences, and summarizes the results of its deliberations to the Faculty of Arts & Sciences. The EPPC is advisory to the Executive Committee and also collaborates closely with the Policy and Planning Committee (PPC).

The EPPC has the following members: the EVPAS; the Dean of Columbia College and Vice President for Undergraduate Education; the Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and Vice President for Graduate Education; the Chair of the Committee on the Core (or his or her designee); the Chair of the Committee on the Global Core (or his or her designee); the Chair of the Committee on Science Instruction (or his or her designee); three faculty members appointed by PPC, including at least one member of PPC who acts as liaison between PPC and EPPC, and three additional members of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, one from each division, appointed by the Executive Committee. The EVPAS shall appoint the chair of EPPC. The Deans of the School of General Studies, the School of the Arts, and the School of Professional Studies will be ex officio members of EPPC. The EPPC will coordinate with the Chair of the Committee on Instruction of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences as appropriate. Three students members representing GSAS, CC and GS will be selected by the respective schools from a slate of candidates nominated by the respective student councils.
