The European Studies program is governed by an Executive Committee of faculty that represents various departments and schools across campus. Affiliated faculty, comprised of faculty members whose work relates to Europe and who have elected to join this body, participate in discussions related to the program
Most of the assessment of the major and minor is done by the program coordinator through competency exams and surveys of graduates and alumni. The Executive Committee meets regularly to review the results of these exams and surveys and make recommendations to the affiliated faculty for needed changes. The results of the assessment work are communicated annually to the faculty affiliates, who are invited to discuss these findings.
