Policy Review Special Committee

Many current BFC policies were based on the old language in UFC policies on matters like hiring, annual reports, faculty boards of review, the status of NTTs, and appointment classifications. Much of the language in the Bloomington campus policies is now inconsistent with university policy and needs to be updated.

This new committee will work one-on-one with the UFC Policy Review Committee to make the necessary revisions. If any substantive policy issues arise, they will be referred to the appropriate standing committee.

Committee charge

  • Act in conjunction with the UFC Policy Review Committee and the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs to review existing campus academic policies and recommend revisions as necessary to make them consistent with current University policies and practices.
  • Consider and recommend to the BFC whether a standing Policy Review Committee is needed, whether IUB should create a policy on establishing campus policies equivalent to university policy UA-08, and whether there should be a chief policy officer for the campus.
  • Act in conjunction with the BFC Office and CARC to develop a process for the proposing, vetting, reviewing, and advancing BFC policy changes.
  • Make periodic progress reports to the BFC and a final report within 4 years.
