Proposed new academic units or proposals to disestablish, re-align or reorganize existing academic units must be included on the ABOR approved Academic Plan
. With prior approval from the University Provost’s office, the “Proposal to Make Changes in an Academic Unit
” may be routed through the internal ASU proposal development and review process prior to ABOR meeting on the academic plan, although final implementation requires ABOR approval. That is, there is no required order of events for ABOR and internal approvals. Normally changes are considered by the unit, the relevant college/school committee if applicable, the college dean or school director, the University Provost's office, the Curriculum and Academic Programs Committee (CAPC) of the University Senate, and the University Senate, first reading and second reading/vote.
Final decisions are made by the University Provost.
