Provost's Advisory Committee on Undergraduate Programs

The Provost's Advisory Committee on Undergraduate Programs (PACUP) reviews, evaluates, and makes recommendations to the Provost concerning basic standards, regulations, and policies of undergraduate study, as well as academic planning proposals for: (1) new or substantially modified majors, degree programs, academic departments or schools; (2) termination of majors, degree programs, academic departments or schools; (3) new certificate programs, areas of concentration, or minors; and (4) termination of certificate programs, areas of concentration, or minors. PACUP also receives periodic reports from the appropriate faculty councils and committees on the current status of all undergraduate degree and certificate programs and, when necessary, conducts its own reviews. Two PACUP members serve on the Subcommittee for the Evaluation of Academic Programs. PACUP comprises ten voting members from the undergraduate faculty, two voting members from the undergraduate student body, and four non-voting ex officio officio academic administrators. All members serve on a rotating basis. PACUP is chaired by the Provost's designee.
