In support of the Committee on Academic Policy, the Office of Academic Programs, Policy and Accreditation is responsible for:
- coordinating the development and maintenance of policies and procedures relating to academic affairs and student life.
- providing oversight of school and/or academic unit level policies and procedures.
- recommending university-wide policies and procedures as appropriate.
Many stakeholders within the OHSU education mission participate in the development and revision of academic policies. Policies are represented to the Committee on Academic Policy (CAP) for review and approval every other month. CAP consists of faculty, academic administrators, a faculty senator, a student, members from the Office of the Provost and the Office of General Counsel.
The Office of Academic Programs, Policy and Accreditation is responsible for reporting policy activity to the Provost and to the Policy Advisory Committee.
Policy Development Process
To suggest a policy concept or revision for CAP consideration, individuals or academic units should contact Anna Teske, Assistant Vice Provost. Each request will be reviewed in accordance with the Academic Policy Process Map.
For additional information please see the section below on Policy Resources.
