New Academic Program Proposal
To assist academic departments in their curriculum development of new initiatives, three documents from the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education must be consulted.
The title of the first document, "Notification of Intent to Develop a New Major; New Minor Program When No Major Exists; or New Certificate Program when No Major Exists," explains its purpose. This document needs to be submitted to the PASSHE through the Provost, for approval before a completed proposal document is produced. For further information on this procedure, please contact Cindi Dillon at extension 2172.
A second document, New Academic Program Proposal Process," offers information on the actions, and time table for new academic program proposals
The third document, "Suggested Format for New Academic Program Proposals," is a set of guidelines that deal with new program proposals. Those proposals are to contain a specified and detailed set of elements.
The guidelines and formats found in these documents are in addition to local University Curriculum Committee procedures.
For additional information call Ms. Cynthia Dillon at (724) 738-2172.
