The Office of the Associate Provost for Academic
Planning & Programs provides guidance and oversight of proposals
for academic program, curriculum, course and unit changes at all stages of the
approval process. We are available to help with:
- Academic program changes, including the
development of new degrees, certificates and minors, curriculum and
procedural changes to approved programs, establishing an existing
program in new locations, including the Universities at Shady Grove,
and the renaming or elimination of existing programs.
- Course changes, including new course proposals, course modification proposals, and course retirement proposals. Please see our VPAC course proposal information.
- Unit changes, including moving or merging
academic units, creating, renaming or dividing departments or colleges,
and establishing centers.
- Unit reviews, including advising on the
schedule, policies, and procedures for the unit review process.
We strongly recommend that all
program and unit proposals be discussed with this office as early as possible to
identify any potential challenges and to ensure expedient progress
through the approval process.
Please let us know if we can be of assistance
in any way.
