The Committee shall also adjudicate course grade appeals based upon procedural irregularities, in accordance with the University’s official policy on course grade appeals. It shall recommend to the Senate changes in University policy to increase emphasis on quality and the importance of teaching, and shall strive to keep a proper balance between teaching and research.
