ALL-COLLEGE COMMITTEES

INSTITUTIONAL POLICY & PLANNING COMMITTEE (IPPC)  Elected

Function: The IPPC advises the President with regard to strategic planning, taking a comprehensive view of significant issues affecting the College. In so doing, it serves as the central deliberative body for all-College governance. More specifically, IPPC advises the President on all policy areas, with primary responsibility for those areas beyond the purview of faculty governance (such as budget and financial planning, benefits, environmental issues, admissions and financial aid, student affairs, and advancement).

The President chairs the IPPC; an elected member of the Faculty serves as Vice-Chair. The agenda of the committee is set by these two individuals.  The IPPC may appoint subcommittees to serve as resources for the committee with regard to any area of policy or planning as needed. The composition of such subcommittees is determined by IPPC in consultation with FEC and with other groups or individuals as appropriate.

Membership: The President (Chair); the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs; the Vice President for Finance and Administration; the Vice President for Advancement; the Vice President and Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid; the Dean of Students and Vice President for Student Affairs; the Dean of Special Programs; the Director of Institutional Research; the Chief Technology Officer; the Chair of the Campus Sustainability Subcommittee; the Chair of the Committee on Intercultural and Global Understanding; one of the two Vice-Chairs of the Subcommittee on Responsible Citizenship (one to be designated to sit on IPPC each year); three faculty members elected for three-year terms, one of whom serves as Vice-Chair; the chair of the Faculty Executive Committee (FEC); the Chair of the Committee on Educational Policies and Planning (CEPP); one representative from the administrative/professional staff; one representative from the support staff; the President of SGA; and the SGA Vice President for Financial Affairs.
