New Academic Program Development Handbook and Forms

Attached is the June 2010 version of the handbook.

For new graduate degree program concept papers, please use the template in the file attached below. It combines the college's concept paper and the SUNY Letter of Intent into a single document, reducing the work for faculty involved in developing proposals.

The Guidelines for Developing Certificate Programs were the first of the documents to guide faculty in proposing and developing new academic programs. These guidelines were reviewed and supported by CUSP and GSPC and are posted in the Policies and Procedures Manual under Procedures. The template in the handbook above incorporates these requirements. As we gain more experience with developing certificates at the college, we can revisit the processes and make adjustments.
