Level II Proposals
Level II proposals require both Faculty Senate and Board of Regents approval.
Level II proposals are required for substantive changes such as:
- Changing names of degrees (e.g. from B.A. to B.F.A.);
- Implementing a new minor or certificate where there is no major or no option in a major;
- Establishing new degrees and add majors to existing degrees;
- Any other changes in governance and organization described in Board of Regents' Policy 218, such as formation, elimination or consolidation of a college, division, school, department, institute, bureau, center, station, laboratory, or similar unit.
Step 1: Submission to the Office of the Provost
- Please submit hard copy and electronic (Word) versions of all applicable forms and appendices for initial review in the Office of the Provost.
- Level II Proposals must include:
- Faculty Senate Level II Form: Requires the signature of the program chair/director, signatures from chairs/directors of other affected programs, the appropriate dean's signature, and the signature of the Dean of Libraries.
- BOR Level II Request Form and Item Template: The item number and meeting date fields should be blank on each form. This information will be added in the Provost's Office before final submission.
- Curriculum Proposal Form
- Course Form: Needed when a Level II proposal requires the addition of new courses (including appropriate syllabi).
Step 2: Submission to the Faculty Senate
After review, the Provost's Office will submit copies of the proposal to the Faculty Senate Office for review by ASCRC or Graduate Council as appropriate.
Step 3: Submission to the Office of the Commissioner of Higher Education (OCHE)
- Following Senate approval, the Provost's office will add the appropriate dates and item numbers on the BOR forms and narratives, will perform minor revisions as necessary, and will submit system-level forms to OCHE.
