CAS-AC Curricular Review

The Academic Council of the College of Arts and Sciences is charged by its Charter to formulate the academic aims of the College, oversee the quality of education in the College, and establish such policies as will promote these aims. Its members represent the faculty of the College (as organized in departments and other academic units, and at-large) and representatives of the Student Government of Loyola Chicago; the Dean of the College and other officers of the University as designated by the Council shall be ex-officio members of the Council, with the right to attend meetings and to address the Council but without the right to vote. The Council performs its functions in advisory capacity to the Dean.

A regular item of the Council's business when it meets each month is to review curricular applications submitted through the Council's DocFinity platform. The platform and the Council's procedures are explained on these pages.
