The administration of the Bachelor of Integrated Studies program will be accomplished through a program coordinator. Faculty members comprising the Integrated Studies committee will have authority over functions related to the curriculum. The committee will review and approve the course of study developed by the student and the advisor. The primary purpose of the committee is to evaluate the degree plans and portfolios for those students seeking the Bachelor of Integrated Studies degree. The committee will assign appropriate individuals from its membership or appoint appropriate faculty to evaluate each proposed degree plan and final portfolio as they reach the committee. The portfolio reviewers will receive portfolio assessment training through the Teaching Resource Center.
