Pending the electronic set-up in the 2006-07 academic year, the electronic format approved by the Senate R-06-02-03 and approved by the President 6/9/06 will be as follows:

a.  Departmental approval of the proposed change(s).

b.  Transmission of the proposal to the appropriate school review committee in electronic form.

c.  Each school review committee chair will electronically post the proposals and notify all University department chairs that they should check the proposals. (the place where this should be posted and the manner should be determined by the deans and the appropriate technical staff.)

d.  Department chairs will decide whether they think their departments are affected and if so, go to the complete proposal. When a department chair thinks the change has an effect on the department, she or he will provide input to the review committee before or during the approval process

e.  After the approval by the school committee, the proposal proceeds to the next step of the process as before (CUCAS or Graduate Council) where departments who consider themselves affected may also provide input.

Rev. Senate Approval: R-05-12-6
