The record group consists of minutes, correspondence, notes, circulars, reviews and proposals of the Educational Polcy Task Force of the College Planning Committee (1969-70) and the Educational Policy Committee (1970 to 1989). The Educational Policy Committee (EPC) was created in 1970 as part of the new goveranace system and is comprised of adminstration, faculty, and students. The EPC was given responsibilty for determining the educational program and policies of the college including curricular programs, academic regulations, matters of academic standing, and questions pertaining to calendar and class schedule.
The collection is arranged into three subgroups, the first subgroup consisting of the papers of the Task Force, the second of the papers from each chairperson of the committee, the third subgroup consisting of departmental "reviews." The EPC minutes are filed separately from the main collection, as are the minutes of the Academic Standing Committee. Additional departmental reviews are on file in the Library.
Items of interest in the collection include a questionnaire on class schedule revision sent to faculty and seniors, located in Tisdale's Miscellaneous subseries. In addition, two questionnaires are included in Wolf's Interdisciplinary Studies folder (which contains most of the documents of the Coordinating Committee on Interdisciplinary Studies) in the Concentrations, Studies, and Miscellaneous Curricular Programs subseries. The miscellaneous folders of the various subseries are occasionally complied from numerous small subject folders found in the original filing system; in such cases the folder contains its own directory of the original folder titles which are contained within it. And in the original filing system, a few early Tisdale documents were interfiled with Wolf's papers. These folders are mostly located in the Wolf series.
