Ga s suggested strategies
GA’s suggested strategies

  • Explore ways to streamline the academic planning process so that FSU can respond more nimbly to external needs.

  • FSU should review its academic planning process in order to be more efficient (PACE) and more responsive to external needs.

  • FSU should utilize expert teams where appropriate to assess academic program needs across the system for meeting state needs.


Program planning intent
Program Planning: “Intent”

  • The “Faculty Advocate” develops the Intent to Planin consultation with the “External (Subject Matter Experts) Advisory Panel” (chair of FS AAC is member).

  • Intent to Plan is reviewed by the Department’s Curriculum Committee.

  • Dean (acting as advocate) will present the Intent to Plan to the “Council of Deans” (includes the Provost, Deans, and Chair of the Faculty Senate).

  • Provost will submit the Intent to Plan to the UNC General Administration (GA).


From intent to establish
From “Intent” to “Establish”

Once the Provost receives notification from GA, the Provost will inform the respective Dean, who in turn will notify the Department’s Curriculum Committee that they can proceed to develop the “Request to Establish.”


Request to establish
Request to Establish

  • Department’s Curriculum Committee

  • Full Department

    • Upon approval, the Department’s Chair will forward the approved “Request to Establish” document

  • School/College Curriculum Committee (Dean is a member of this committee)

    • Graduate School, Teacher Education Committee, CORE Assessment Committee

  • Faculty Senate (via FS AAC)

  • Provost…Chancellor…UNC GA…SACS


Online distance learning
Online/Distance Learning

  • Degree Programs in which 50% or more of the program is provided via distance/online education must be authorized by GA.

    • Appendix F (Intent)

    • Appendix G (Establish)


Fs response minor changes to programs
FS Response:“Minor Changes” to Programs

  • Modifying a program, which may include changing the required or elective courses within the program, need NOT be approved by the FS

    • must be approved by the Departmental Curriculum Committee, the full Department, and the School/College-wide Curriculum Committee (of which the Dean is a member).

    • Written notification of such changes must be provided to the Provost’s office prior to implementation of changes.


Substantive program changes need fs approval
“Substantive Program Changes”: Need FS Approval

  • Expanding programs at current or more advanced degree level

    • Includes proposing new majors, minors, concentrations, certificate programs, and graduate programs

  • Initiating Online and/or Distance Learning

    • 26-49%

    • 50%+

  • Initiating degree completion programs

  • Eliminating a program


Fs response course planning
FS Response:Course Planning

  • Efficiency of Course Planning can be improved by creating conditions in which faculty have increased freedom and responsibility to create, modify, and eliminate courses.


Minor course changes
“Minor Course Changes”

  • Initiating, modifying, or eliminating courses that do not affect the Core Curriculum do NOT need to be approved by the FS

    • must be approved by the Departmental Curriculum Committee and the full Department.

    • Written notification of such changes must be provided to the appropriate Dean’s and Provost’s office prior to implementation of changes.


Substantive course changes need fs approval
“Substantive Course Changes”Need FS Approval

  • Initiating, modifying, or eliminating courses that affect the Core Curriculum

  • Initiating coursework at a more advanced level than currently approved


Program review

    • Note: this may be initiated by UNC GA Notification


Continuation of low producing programs
Continuation of Low Producing Programs

  • If a credible case has been developed to continue the program, the Dean (acting as advocate) presents the evidence to the “Council of Deans.”

  • If approved, the “Council of Deans” sends their recommendation back to the Department curriculum committee, so they can further develop the “Request to Continue/Discontinue.”
