Administrative history:
The Academic Affairs Board (AAB) was created in 1976 as a committee of the Faculty Senate. Prior to that, curriculum was governed by the Southcentral Regional Council. In 1989 the functions of AAB were split between graduate and undergraduate academic matters and the Graduate Affairs Board was formed and AAB continued with the undergraduate portion of the workload. In 1997, with a new Faculty Senate constitution, the name of the committee was changed to the Undergraduate Academic Board (UAB). In 2004, the General Education Requirements Committee was formed as a subset of UAB to provide review for GER courses.

Agency functions:
UAB reviews all undergraduate level courses and programs to be added, changed, or deleted from the catalog and university offerings.
