The primary responsibility of the Curriculum and Educational Policies Committee (CEPC) will be to review all proposals regarding CAS-wide educational policies and initiatives, and to make recommendations to the Dean including any timelines with respect to their implementation. The CEPC will also review proposals for new programs (majors, concentrations, minors, certificates, departmental honors curricula, online programs, etc.), as well as substantive curricular modifications to existing programs and majors, and make recommendations to the Dean when warranted. The Chair(s) of the department(s) will submit department-initiated curriculum proposals and revisions to the Dean, who decides whether to forward to CEPC.

The committee consists of nine elected members who each serve three-year terms. The Committee shall consist of one member from the Arts, two members from the Humanities, two members from the Life Sciences, two members from the Physical Sciences & Mathematics, and two members from the Social Sciences. Committee members shall be full-time CAS faculty members from any rank and tenure status.

Three members served on the University-wide Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UCC) and one serves on the Graduate Curriculum Committee (GCC).
