The Academic Policy and Program Committee collection consists of minutes and related materials, subcommittee minutes, curriculum reviews, and other work group materials and articles that concern the academic program at Gustavus Adolphus College.  The AP&P committee had many functions, including annual reviews of graduation requirements and curriculum, planning of the academic calendar, review and recommendation of faculty departmental programs, and campus-wide academic programs.  The committee was disbanded during spring 1997, and its duties were divided into both existing and new committees.
