Dean of the Faculty

Welcome to Reed's Office of the Dean of the Faculty

Committee on Academic Policy and Planning (CAPP)

The Committee on Academic Policy and Planning (CAPP) consists of seven Academic Faculty members elected by the faculty, plus the President and the Dean of the Faculty as ex officio members. The CAPP is charged to “work with departments and divisions in order to maintain a working knowledge of the current curriculum and to formulate and maintain a long-range plan of curricular priorities from which it may initiate and shall review all proposals relating to the curriculum and educational goals of the College.” In addition, it is to serve as “a forum” in which the President of the College shall “test[...] and seek[...] advice about Faculty opinion on matters concerning the College and its resources.” (A full description of the Committee’s responsibilities can be found in Article IX of the Faculty Constitution.)

    Community members may listen in on, and when invited, speak in regular CAPP meetings. In rare instances, the meeting may be closed temporarily (Faculty Bylaws, Article IV, Section 3, C1.)
  • Get elected
