Faculty Committees

The Learning & Teaching Council is charged with enhancing the quality of learning and teaching at BYU-Idaho. This council is comprised of the chairs of the three Learning & Teaching Committees and is chaired by the Associate Academic Vice President of Instruction. This council meets at least once each semester to coordinate resources from the Academic Office and the efforts of eighteen faculty serving on the various committees.

The Learning & Teaching Committees work under the direction of the Learning & Teaching Council to provide valuable learning opportunities for faculty. Faculty members representing each college are on all committees.
