Program Review/Approval Contacts

In addition to working with leadership in your home unit, programs should work with academic planners and dean's office staff in their own school/college. The Office of Academic Planning and Institutional Research (APIR) (as well as the Graduate School with graduate programs) also work closely on reviews and approvals. Thus, representatives from each unit category below should be consulted; and depending on the status of the review or proposal, programs will be redirected as appropriate.

School/College Dean’s Office and Academic Planner Contacts AND School/College Academic Planning Council (APC)

Typically, your contact will be an assistant/associate dean or academic planner in your school/college dean’s office. Please see the quick list of school/college academic planning contacts below and the attached full list of School/College Dean's Office and Academic Planner Contacts, updated as of October 2016.

Your school/college APC (or equivalent) is the school/college governance body that approves reviews/approvals, college policy, and advises the dean.
