Academic Affairs Committees

Administrative Committees (chaired by Executive Vice Chancellor)

Administrative committees are designed to provide the Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs (EVCAA) and the members of the committees themselves advice on academic affairs and enrollment management matters that have campus-wide implications and to facilitate communications among the various offices represented.

Academic Affairs Cabinet (AAC)

The Academic Affairs Cabinet (AAC) addresses strategic issues as they relate to the academic structure and operations of IU East as a whole, giving special attention to matters that cut across the academic schools.

The membership of the AAC includes the EVCAA (chair), three Associate Vice Chancellors, five School Deans, Director of Social Work, Director of the Library, and Faculty Senate President. Also invited is the Executive Secretary for Academic Affairs, who takes notes at the meetings. Regular meetings of the AAC are held on Tuesday mornings, 9:00 – 10:30 a.m., generally once a month, depending on the volume of items to discuss. Other meetings are scheduled as needed.

Academic Policies and Procedures Implementation Committee (APPIC)

The Academic Policies and Procedures Implementation Committee (APPIC) reviews and discusses problems that may arise with the implementation of current academic policies and procedures to identify potential solutions and to determine how best to avoid such problems in the future.

The membership of APPIC includes the EVCAA (chair), three Associate Vice Chancellors, Faculty Senate President, Registrar, Executive Director of University College, Director of Academic Support Programs, Director of Student Support Services, and the chair of the Academic Affairs and Admissions Committee. Also invited is the Executive Secretary for Academic Affairs, who takes notes at the meetings. APPIC generally meets once a semester or more often if needed.

Enrollment Management Council (EMC)

The Enrollment Management Council (EMC) addresses issues related to student enrollment—its strategic growth and continuous development. This Council has the challenging task of balancing initiatives intended to leverage student enrollments to bring fiscal well-being and stability to the campus with those designed to bring the highest standards of academic integrity to its programs.

The membership of the EMC includes the EVCAA (chair), three Associate Vice Chancellors, Registrar, Director of Admissions, Director of Financial Aid and Scholarships, Executive Director of University College, AA/EEO Officer, Dean of Southeastern Indiana Programs, Institutional Research Analyst and Danielson Center and Connersville Program coordinators.
