ACADEMIC AFFAIRS POLICY 2.08
Institutional Requests for Revision or Elimination of Existing Academic Programs and Administrative Units
The Board of Regents encourages campuses and their management boards to initiate self-evaluation leading to the revision or elimination of existing academic programs and administrative units which are under productive or of marginal quality.
Requests for termination of existing academic programs and administrative/research units should be submitted using the attached form. Institutions should obtain approval of their management board prior to submission of the request to terminate to the Board of Regents. Requests may be submitted at any time, and a response will be given within ninety (90) days of receipt.
Requests for revision of existing academic programs and/or administrative units should be submitted in writing to the Deputy or Associate Commissioner for Academic Affairs and should outline the specifics of the change(s) along with an appropriate rationale. The Deputy or Associate Commissioner for Academic Affairs may, without Board review, approve those requests for revisions of existing academic programs and administrative units which would not affect the nature of the program or the degree being offered.
