The committee continued its review of the Associate Provost's request for integrating the Ohio Board of Regents' procedures for new degree programs into the WSU guidelines. Additional questions were raised regarding the extent to which the OBR materials submitted to the committee were outdated. Based on recent work in putting together new program proposals it was noted that the OBR may no longer require all or part of the detailed financial statements. Also, in order to proceed, the committee needs additional information on past practices of submitting to OBR the "Preliminary Prospectus" and the "Formal Application" and the extent to which the "Preliminary" has differed from the "Formal." The committee further discussed the possible issues related to the submission of new degree and program proposals to OBR prior to their review and approval by faculty governance. It was decided to attempt to gather the necessary information from the Provost's Office and work toward drafting a document for the committee to review at its next meeting.
