Improvement of Instruction Committee

The Faculty Senate Improvement of Instruction Committee will recommend university policies on instruction to the Faculty Senate. In cooperation with unit faculty and appropriate university officers, the committee makes recommendations to the Faculty Senate concerning improvement and evaluation of teaching

The Committee communicates with appropriate committees, such as the Personnel Policies Committee, and with appropriate university offices such as Testing Services and the Center for Teaching and Learning, for the purpose of regularly reviewing and making recommendations to the Faculty Senate about matters and policy broadly related to improvement of instruction and evaluation of teaching. Such matters will include, but not be limited to, SOS administration, professional development related to teaching, course scheduling, the calendar, use of university facilities and space for instruction, textbook orders, and availability of library, computer, and other technological resources for instruction.

The Committee is responsible for oversight of the SOS instrument. It periodically reviews the instrument to ensure that university and departmental question prompts serve their intended purpose and that the data do not exhibit bias. The Committee recommends revisions to the common question prompts to the Faculty Senate. The Committee establishes criteria for the additional of a small number of instruction-related prompts to the common core that address dimensions specific to a department, program, or course delivery method (e.g., lab). The Committee approves such additions when such requests meet the criteria established by the Committee and approved by the Senate.

The Committee reports on its activities to the Faculty Senate at the last April meeting of each academic year.
