The Petitions Subcommittee is comprised of three faculty members from the EAC. The chair of EAC serves as the chair of the Petitions Subcommittee. The Office of the Vice President for Instruction provides administrative support for the EAC and the Subcommittee, and maintains records of the Subcommittee including student files and other pertinent materials.
