COLL100 / 150 Subcommittee

The Educational Policy Committee (EPC) delegates the review of COLL 100 and COLL 150 proposals to an appointed subcommittee. The review may include communication to the faculty member about the proposal. Proposals fully aligned with the Arts & Sciences Faculty and EPC criteria are forwarded to the EPC for final approval. Additionally, the subcommittee collaborates with the EPC and the Center for the Liberal Arts (CLA) in the following ways:

  • Advise the EPC on refinements to the course criteria and the Curriculog proposal form.
  • Advise the CLA on areas indicated for faculty development.

The subcommittee consists of at least five (5) members: 

  • 1 faculty member on EPC
  • 1 faculty member with knowledge of teaching writing
  • 1 faculty member to round out disciplinary areas represented
  • 1 faculty/professional member, information literacy (W&M Libraries)
  • 1 faculty/professional member, instructional technology (Studio for Teaching and Learning Innovation)

Subcomittee members serve 1-year, renewable terms and typically meet at least monthly during the academic semesters. Priority is given to the selection of members who have taught a COLL 100 or COLL 150 course.
