Policy on Changes to Academic Units

The authority to determine the organizational structure and names of academic units at Wright State University rests with the Board of Trustees, acting on recommendations of faculty and administrators, including those who might be directly or indirectly affected by changes.

Recommendations to create, to merge or otherwise alter, to terminate, or to change the name of colleges, schools, departments or other equivalent academic units shall be submitted by the Provost to the Board of Trustees. At least two months before such recommendations are made, the full-time faculty in any affected school or college, the Faculty President, and the Council of Deans must have been informed of the possible change(s) so that they may express their support or opposition if they choose to do so.
