Academic Affairs Committee on Graduate Studies

About the Committee

The Academic Affairs Committee on Graduate Studies (AACG) is charged with maintaining the quality of the graduate education, and with reviewing, formulating, and approving policies and practices affecting graduate education at the University of the Pacific.

With respect to curricular issues, it reviews and approves graduate curricular proposals, including the establishment of new programs, revision of existing programs, new locations or modalities, addition, revision and deletion of courses, changes in course sequencing, credit hours, and course descriptions. The charge does not include approval of curricular and program changes of Pacific's three professional programs (DDS, JD, and PharmD).  The AACG receives graduate curricular proposals  only after they have been approved by the appropriate faculty committee and dean of the school or college recommending the curricular change and schools/colleges affected by the proposal. The AACG recommends the University calendar for the University of the Pacific.  In addition, the AACG approves name changes of graduate academic departments.  (Faculty Handbook 6.2.4)
