PLEASE LET ME KNOW RIGHT NOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN SITTING ON THESE COMMITTEES. They are extremely important.

Hi all,

Impressively short meeting tonight everyone! I’m writing because there are vacancies on two UC systemwide committees and wanted to see if any of you or your constituents are interested in serving. Please let me know ASAP so I can submit your names for nomination. Descriptions of the two committees with current vacancies are below.
Best,
Joey

Board of Admissions and Relations with Schools (BOARS)

Regulates the examination and classification of all applicants for admission to undergraduate status, and reports thereon to the State Assembly. Has power in exceptional cases to admit applicants with minor deficiencies. This committee determines the basis of acceptance of the findings of the College Entrance Examination Board. Passes on application for advanced standing from other colleges and universities. Compiles information on curricula and scholarship standards in California secondary schools. On authorization by the President, confers with representatives of schools and colleges on appropriate scholastic matters. 

 

UC Online Instruction Pilot Project Advisory Committee (OIPP)

OIPP is a systemwide effort to develop and evaluate online undergraduate courses at UC. Crafted as a research project, courses will produce assessment data that researchers will examine to discover how online education can be effectively integrated into UC’s undergraduate curriculum. The first courses are scheduled to be delivered in January 2012, with offerings at only a few campuses. The selection of online courses will expand until January 2013 when all of the over two dozen pilot project courses will have been offered. The OIPP Advisory Committee is an ad hoc sub-committee of the Academic Planning Council established to provide guidance to the pilot project on issues such as:

  • The role for online instruction in the undergraduate curriculum at UC
  • Challenges and best ways to proceed with online instruction
  • Evaluation and assessment of detailed course proposals
  • The faculty’s development of detailed course proposals
  • Fee distribution for cross-campus courses
