Education Policy Committee (EPC)

The Education Policy Committee works with, but is separate from, the Education Unit.

The Education Policy Committee is a standing committee of the School of Pharmacy Faculty Council. Committee members are elected by the faculty and led by a chair. The EPC provides oversight of the PharmD degree program and is charged with the continuous study of the long-range plans of the School as these relate to the profession of pharmacy and the PharmD program. The committee liaisons with other long-range education planning bodies within the University, reviews and makes recommendations regarding the PharmD curriculum and subsidiary questions including the initiation, alteration, or discontinuance of courses of instruction. All proposed significant changes to the PharmD curriculum must be submitted to the EPC for approval.
