A. Discuss major educational issues and determine/approve changes based on recommendations from ESC, SFC, CEC, CUMED, and Office of UME

B. Ensure implementation of the curriculum according to approved principles and policies

C. Review data (including State of the Curriculum report, ad-hoc task group reports, and SFC/CEC/CUMED reports) to ensure that the Twin Cities and Duluth achieve comparable outcomes

D. Ensure horizontal and vertical integration in the curriculum (bi-campus)

E. Identify topic areas that are to be addressed by ad-hoc task force groups


Committee Members

The Education Council has more than 25 voting members, including Medical School and curriculum leaders, faculty members and students from both campuses. The EC also includes a large number of non-voting members, including representatives of affiliate organizations.
