- Reviewing proposals to create new programs; advising on program development; making recommendations to the Curriculum Committee regarding approval.
- Reviewing program leader applications and selection of program leaders.
- Advising on the scope and extent of Overseas and Off-Campus program offerings
Leader Application Policies and Procedures
The call for applications to lead programs is typically made in the spring semester, with applications due in October 2 of the following academic year. In general, applications will be invited 2-3 years in advance of the scheduled program.
The Overseas and Off-Campus Programs Committee is charged with reviewing applications and selecting program leaders.
The following criteria and considerations are taken into account when reviewing program leader applications:
• Qualifications, interests and goals of the applicant as expressed in the application
• Priority is given to faculty, with preference for those with tenure
• Consideration is given to applicants involved in the establishment and ongoing development of overseas and off-campus programs for which they are applying
