The composition and responsibilities of this committee (EAPC) are defined by the Bylaws of the College of Engineering as:

"This committee shall consist of the dean, who shall be chairperson, the Heads of the schools and departments, and one full professor (excluding assistant and associate heads) from each school or department elected by the voting members of that school or department for a two-year term. This committee can be appropriately augmented using a similar election process to promotion of Research Faculty."

"This committee shall act on faculty promotions concordant with the University Policy Concerning Promotions. In addition, this committee shall consider and vote on cases of faculty tenure without promotion and deviations from regular emeritus policy.
