Education at OHSU

Academic Policy

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, provide oversight of school and/or academic unit level policies and procedures and to recommend university-wide policies and procedures as appropriate. Many stakeholders within the education mission of OHSU participate in the development and revision of academic policies. 

Policies are represented to the Committee on Academic Policy (CAP) for review and approval on a quarterly basis. CAP consists faculty, academic administrators, a faculty senator, a student, members from the Office of the Provost and the Office of General Councel. 

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 CAP Policy Review Protocol and Academic Policy Processes Map. 

For additional information please see the section below on Policy Resources.
