Swift Curricular Approvals: What Does it Take?

Dean/Provost Conversation during College Planning and Budget process

Lack of Dean/Provost Conversation

NEW Request – Requires Funding

1. Initiation of Program Concept by Department/Dean

  • This consultation will give consideration to the appropriateness and priority of the program in the long-range development of the University.

  • Does the request have funding implications? If so, the request requires unit reflection for budget projections and planning, and must follow normal administrative channels.

  • Are there any academic policy implications?

  • Is the program academically sustainable?

  • Does the request involve teacher certification?

  • Are approvals/signoffs required? These should be requested via the online request form.

  • If submitting a new academic program, is Statewide Academic Program Review required? (About 10% require review)Note: the Office of the Provost is required to submit materials to the Presidents Council of State Universities of Michigan Office six weeks prior to the meeting at which the proposal is considered; the Academic Affairs Officers Committee meets four times a year.

  • To align academic planning and curricular change, ALL requests for NEW funds must be included in the College's annual planning letter.

  • Failure of the Dean to consult with the Provost will halt the process at step 5. until the Provost has determined that consultation can occur with the Dean of The Graduate School, the Dean of Undergraduate Studies and others as appropriate.

CHANGE Request – May Require Funding

ROUTINE Change

1. Department

  • Have you requested the necessary sign-offs and approvals?

    • A sign-off is a request for support or commentary (act of collegiality). Units have 14 days to respond. Indication of support or non-support is not binding.

  • An approval is a request for support (required). Interdepartmental programs and programs that use another unit’s course as a requirement in a program require approvals.

  • Sign-offs and approvals need to be requested on the online request form. Failure to request these will delay the program request.
