Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Council on Professional Education (COPE)

Council on Professional Education (COPE) is advisory council to the Head of the Unit. Election or appointment to COPE carries with it the responsibility to be a steward for the unit: to serve the students and faculty directly and the citizens of the state through ensuring quality programs and professionals. For these reasons, it is assumed that COPE will not only use its authority to engage in oversight, documentation, and evaluation but will also engage the unit in discussions of topics of national significance, foster communication, collaboration and interdisciplinary activities, and thereby provide a sense of future to the unit. COPE will meet monthly during the academic year and as needed during the summer session.
