The Academic Affairs Committee (AAC) is charged with representing the student perspective on all academic issues, including reviews of programs and departments, academic regulations, library policy, student-professor relations, as well as general academic procedures. The Chair and Vice-Chair vote alongside six faculty members on the Wesleyan Educational Policy Committee (EPC), the forum through which all changes to academic regulations at Wesleyan are debated and voted on. The Educational Policy Committee (EPC) has both the responsibility and the right to review proposed changes in the curriculum. Although there are no specific criteria specifying which proposals concerning major programs must be approved by the EPC, precedent and common sense suggest that proposals with the following impact be presented to the EPC for its approval.

Areas that AAC has worked on include: the Honor Code, the academic calendar, advising, Drop/Add regulations, the Art Library move, the formation of Winter Session, and much more.
