Status of Proposals Received:
Please note that the Senate Committee on Educational Policy is only one of the bodies that may review a proposal. If approved by the Committee, a proposal is forwarded to the full Senate for a vote. Additional approvals by the Board of Trustees and the Illinois Board of Higher Education (IBHE) may be necessary for some proposals.
The Provost's Office will inform the sponsors in writing when a proposal has received all necessary approvals and may be implemented. Further, note that some curricular and degree changes may require a waiting period after final approval before they may be implemented. The "Status" reports listed below are not official.
* Links to electronic version of proposals available only after item is placed on the Senate agenda.
** Proposals are received by the Senate Committee on Educational Policy after review at the unit and college levels as well as review by the Office of the Provost. Graduate proposals (except professional degree program proposals) are reviewed by the Graduate College also after review by the disciplinary college review.
Important Note: Proposals may be approved by the Committee provisionally, pending receipt of the revised version and/or additional documents or information by the Committee. Proposals will not be forwarded to the Senate unless revised version and/or additional requested material is received and approved by the appropriate Subcommittee Chair. The Educational Policy Committee may pull a proposal from the Senate agenda, if necessary.
