The Undergraduate Board

The Academic Senate has delegated to the Undergraduate Board general supervision over specific matters relating to undergraduate study, parallel to the responsibilities of the Graduate Board (above). The Undergraduate Board reports its recommendations to the Academic Senate. The Vice Provost and Dean of Undergraduate Studies is the Chair of the Undergraduate Board, ex officio. Members are appointed by the Academic Senate upon the joint recommendation of the Chair of the Undergraduate Board and the Dean of the School from which the appointment is made. Each School is represented on the Undergraduate Board by a number of members equal to the number of its faculty delegates in the Academic Senate. Deans are eligible for membership on the Board. The terms of office coincide with those of the delegates to the Academic Senate.

Faculty participation on the Undergraduate Board is as follows: Arts & Sciences - seven members, Engineering - two members, Music, Drama and Art - two members, Theology and Religious Studies - two members, and one each from Architecture, Business, Metropolitan College, Nursing, Philosophy, and National Catholic School of Social Service (NCSSS).
