Educator Preparation Curriculum Committee (EPCC)

OVERVIEW POLICIES AND PROCEDURES MEMBERSHIP

Overview

The Educator Preparation Curriculum Committee (EPCC) serves as the curriculum committee of the Educator Preparation Program and the Bagwell College of Education.

Purpose

The purpose of the EPCC is to provide support and ensure accountability in the development of programs and curricula within the Educator Preparation Program (EPP) and the Bagwell College of Education (BCOE). As part of the curriculum revision and review process, the EPCC receives all program and course proposals developed by the EPP and the BCOE to ensure agreement with Board of Regents, Georgia Professional Standards Commission, Kennesaw State University, EPP, and BCOE policies, procedures, and goals. After a successful review by the EPCC, program and course proposals are forwarded to the Undergraduate Policies and Curriculum Committee (UPCC) and Graduate Policies and Curriculum Committee (GPCC) for further review.

Duties

The duties of the EPCC are as follows:

  • Ensure that Kennesaw State University guidelines for the design and content of programs and courses are followed.
  • Evaluate proposals for programs and courses related to all degree, certificate, and endorsement programs in the EPP and the BCOE.
  • Assist and encourage programs to comply with appropriate accreditation agencies.
  • Post all agendas and approved minutes for each meeting on the EPCC website.

Meetings

The EPCC holds regularly scheduled meetings twice a month on Thursdays. Special meetings may be called when deemed necessary and appropriate by the EPCC Chair or upon request from EPCC Members.
