The Lumen online system is the gateway for faculty, curricular representatives, and governance bodies to update, track, and approve functions related to courses, curriculum, and programs. Lumen is based on the vendor-developed CourseLeaf software, and the data system was specifically tailored for UW-Madison's processes. 

Lumen Program, which was implemented in October 2018, is the component of the overall system that deals with academic program development and maintenance. Likewise, Lumen Courses is focused on course-related activities and Lumen Structures captures activities within other academic realms, such as departments, subjects, centers, divisions, etc.

Within the Lumen Program system, individuals can propose new academic programs or make changes to existing academic programs. This includes degrees/majors, named options, certificate (undergraduate, graduate/professional, and capstone), minors, honors programs, and non-degree programs.
