Timeline for New Program Proposal Review 2016

The cycles of review may fluctuate based on outside/external reviews, inter-institutional and intra-institutional coordination, senior administrator input, reviews from academic advisory committees and/or task forces, and other changes at the campus and system levels. New programs will consist of a two-step process: prospectus and formal proposal. Requests to establish endowed chairs or special faculty positions need to be submitted before the draft agenda due date. Please note that a departmental vetting process takes place approximately one month to a minima of two weeks before draft agendas are due internally in the system office.
