Committees and Councils

Undergraduate Council

PurposeTo consider all matters relating to undergraduate programs at Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi and to recommend practices and policies that enhance the quality of A&M-CC undergraduate programs.

Function: The Undergraduate Council reports through the Faculty Senate.  The Undergraduate Council reviews and evaluates the admissions policies and processes, curriculum and program requirements, academic standards, grading policies and practices, academic advising, orientation, library and learning resources, computer and laboratory facilities, and other issues relating specifically to undergraduate education at the University. In fulfilling these responsibilities, the Council coordinates with the University Core Curriculum Programs. The Council also assists the Provost’s Office in reviewing the content of the Undergraduate Catalog.

This council also reviews new undergraduate programs being considered by the University once the college initiating the proposal has approved them.  Once approved by the Council, the proposal will continue through the regular approval process (i.e., the Faculty Senate, the Provost’s Leadership Team, and the President.)

The Undergraduate Council also considers strategic directions that the University should pursue regarding undergraduate education and assists in the formulation of marketing, scholarship, recruiting, and program development objectives needed to achieve the institution’s undergraduate education goals.

All substantive changes in policies and curriculum recommended by the Undergraduate Council should be submitted by April 1 of each year to the College Dean’s Council and the Faculty Senate for consideration.

MembershipTwo full-time (including tenured and tenure track faculty, clinical, professional and research faculty, as well as full time instructors) undergraduate faculty members elected from each college for staggered two-year terms, an associate dean or other undergraduate administrator from each college, one representative appointed by the Faculty Senate, one representative from the Department of Undergraduate Studies, and a professional librarian serve as voting members.  A Provost’s designee, a representative from Enrollment Management, and the Chaire of the Department of Undergraduate Studies as ex-officio.

Chair: Elected by the Undergraduate Council each year.
