The Architecture Field of Study Advisory Committee (Architecture FOS) is composed of faculty and administrators from institutions across the state, half from universities that offer one or more baccalaureate degree programs in an architecture discipline and half from community and technical colleges that offer courses leading to an undergraduate degree in architecture.
At its December 10, 2014, quarterly meeting, and after a 30-day, statewide comment period ending on December 7, the Coordinating Board's Committee on Academic and Workforce Success adopted the Commissioner's recommendation to establish the Architecture FOS. Please see Board rules, Chapter 1, Subchapter BB, Sections §1.9501-1.9507, which were published in the Texas Register on November 7, 2014. The full Board adopted these rules at its January 22, 2015, meeting.
The Architecture FOS is charged with identifying and recommending to the Coordinating Board the block of courses which may be transferred to a general academic teaching institution and must be substituted for that institution's lower-division requirements for the architecture degree program into which the student transfers.
Original Charge: 2015
Current Status: Appointed, statutory
Committee members: The committee is composed of faculty and administrators from institutions across the state with members from community and technical colleges and four-year institutions. Members shall serve staggered terms of up to three years.
