Core Curriculum Advisory Committee
The Core Curriculum Advisory Committee (CCAC) is a faculty committee of seven members who are tasked with maintaining the integrity of the core curriculum and serving as a resource for instructors of the Core. The committee supports and ensures that the instructors of all ranks and at all levels of the Core convey the specific objectives of the vision and that these objectives are pursued in the classroom or laboratory.
