Undergraduate Studies Council

The Undergraduate Studies Council serves as a cross campus sounding board for the Dean of Undergraduate Studies, providing insight and recommendations on ways to enhance the undergraduate learning experience and support Undergraduate Studies initiatives and programs. In addition, members act as a liaison and advocacy group with other campus units and Undergraduate Studies' partners.

A subset of full time faculty on the USC form the Curriculum Review Committee that provides curricular oversight for Foundations for Learning (FFL) courses, new courses developed for learning communities and living-learning communities and for courses developed by the Residential College Programs (e.g. RCO courses). Upon the recommendation of the Curriculum Committee, the Dean of Undergraduate Studies will sign and forward course proposals to the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee.

The committee meets once monthly.
