In 1985 the Committee on Educational Policy of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) recommended that its responsibilities be broadened and divided between two faculty committees: the Faculty Policy Committee and the Committee on the Undergraduate Program. The faculty approved the changes in May 1985. The Faculty Policy Committee is chaired by the chair of the faculty of MIT, has responsibility for maintaining a broad overview of MIT's academic programs; interprets, implements, and helps formulate policies on a broad range of issues of concern to the faculty. It identifies issues of concern to faculty and facilitates interchange between members of the faculty and administrators of the Institute.
