Procedures for Reviewing Proposed Level I and Level II Program Changes
To promote timely and collegial discussion of proposals for new academic programs, or modifications to existing programs, that may have important implications for other H&S units.
- Level I and II requests for changes to existing programs, or for the initiation of new programs, must be submitted to the H&S Dean’s Office at least 2 weeks before signed copies are due in the Faculty Senate Office. (In practice, this will typically mean submitting proposals to the H&S Dean’s Office by the second week of fall semester).
- After preliminary review by the Dean’s Office, we will alert all H&S academic units and make a copy available in our office. Interested faculty will be encouraged to examine the proposal and submit any comments or suggestions to the Dean.
- The Dean will consider such input and arrange a discussion between interested parties if it seems advisable before determining whether to sign the documents and forward them to the next level.
Note: For instructions on how to prepare Level I and Level II documents, go to the Office of the Executive Vice President & Provost website.
