Advice on University-wide matters relating to the quality of education at the University of Western Australia, including the student learning experience, is provided by a number of education-related committees
A review of the education-related committees was undertaken in late 2014, with a view to achieving more effective governance within the portfolio. The review resulted in the rationalisation of 11 committees to three.
The Education Committee is a standing committee of the Academic Council. Its role is to advise and make recommendations to the Academic Council and/or other University bodies or officers, as appropriate, on related policy and strategic matters. The Education Committee oversees the following two standing committees.
The role of the Curriculum Committee is to make recommendations to the Academic Council on proposals submitted for the introduction of new curriculum offerings and the approval of major changes to approved curriculum. The Committee also advises and makes recommendations to the Education Committee on related policy and strategic matters.
The role of the Education Futures Strategy Group (EFSG) is to make recommendations to the Education Committee on policy and strategic matters relating to the University's education strategy and vision. The EFSG also makes recommendations to other University bodies or officers, as appropriate, on teaching and learning and to formulate and review appropriate schemes to support the University's education portfolio
Academic Policy Services, via a committees steering group, ensures that committee items are steered to the correct committee. If you have any agenda items, or queries, contact the Executive Officer email box.
