Committee on Instruction
The Committee on Instruction shall study issues of instruction at both undergraduate
and graduate levels. Such issues shall include teaching load, class size, use of graduate
assistants, testing, and other pedagogical problems. 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.
The committee shall also work to find new ways of creating an atmosphere where
education continues beyond the classroom.
