Academic Affairs deals with anything that falls into the realm of academics or the judicial system of the University. This council deals with anything involving specific colleges, building and academic policies that fall under them. This chair will work closely with the faculty senate, deans, and provost's office. Some of the legislation from the past include expanding wireless, posting course book list online, the study abroad policy, and increasing library hours.
