GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION OF NEW PROPOSALS
Academic Policy Committee (APC) drafted “Guidelines for Submission of
New Proposals”. The APC will generally pay less attention to the
academic quality of new programs (assuming that this important matter
has already been dealt with at the departmental and college levels) and
will focus primarily, though not exclusively, on matters of duplication,
feasibility, market, and budget. The committee is concerned with such
matters as program overlap and duplication, staffing (faculty, staff,
graduate assistants), space (classrooms, offices, etc.), technology
support, and library holdings. Issues of academic quality will arise
when resources (including faculty) or support appear inadequate, or when
innovative aspects of the program are poorly documented, or when
programs that span multiple departments, schools, or institutions.
committee asks that each newly proposed program is accompanied by:
Collaboration and internal competition
Timeline for initial program review.
