Purposes and Responsibilities

This committee reports directly to the Academic Policy Council and administers faculty policies related to Trek degree requirements: TREK 115: Credo, TREK 116: Challenge, TREK 151: Service Learning, TREK 251: Independent Career Exploration and Internships, and TREK 351: Intercultural Experience. This committee approves proposed courses and independent projects that meet the criteria for the career exploration, intercultural experience and/or the service- learning requirement according to approved guidelines. The faculty Director of the first-year TREK program (TREK 115 & 116) oversees that program, seeking input from the full committee as needed. The committee shall report all of its actions promptly to the Academic Policy Council, normally through its minutes and reports at faculty meetings.


The committee is composed of four faculty members (one elected by each division and the Faculty Director of the first-year TREK Program); one student; the Directors of Community Engagement, Career Exploration, Career Services, and Intercultural Engagement; and the Provost or representative (ex-officio and without vote).
