The Academic Affairs committee oversees all activities that support the academic mission of the university. The main goal of the committee is to always strive to improve the academic environment on campus. This is done by looking at ways to improve resources, creating new and innovative programs, and receiving feedback from students. The purview of the Academic Affairs Committee includes Duke curriculum, faculty programs and pedagogy, course evaluations, academic advising, course registration, tuition, financial aid, the university academic calendar, admissions, student-faculty interaction, the Undergraduate Honor Code, academic services, study abroad programs, international civic engagement programs, and special academic programs. Academic Affairs Committee members work closely with Office of the Provost, the Office of the Dean of Trinity College, and the Office of the Dean of the Pratt School for Engineering.
