New Academic Policy
It was brought to the committee's attention that over the past several months or more the Ohio Board of Regents has held discussions regarding the concern over institutional programs that remain reported but have not offered degrees over an extended period of time. That is, institutions have for varies reasons deactivated or terminated such programs. However, in some, most, or all cases, there has not been an official institutional declaration of the action, hence official recording of the action. The absence of such is attributed to the lack of an official institutional process, procedure, and policy related to the deactivation, intended reactivation, and termination of programs. While over the past several years, the UCAPC has developed many processes, procedures, and policies to guide colleges and schools in proposing new courses and programs, changing courses and programs, and most recently implementing distance education programs, among other things, the manner in which programs should move through a process of deactivation, reactivation, or termination has not been formalized. To plug this hole in the WSU curriculum and Faculty Governance process, the committee drafted and approved the following for submission to the Faculty Senate at its March 7 Meeting:
Reminder: Remaining Academic Year UCAPC and Faculty Senate deadlines.
Proposals that must go before the General Faculty for approval at the May 17 meeting must be approved by the Faculty Senate in time for inclusion on General Faculty Meeting Agenda (departments and colleges should consult their Senator(s) for deadlines). Otherwise the next consideration is at the November 2005 General Faculty Meeting.
