School Approval

The University Statutes give the individual schools the responsibility for organizing curricular programs leading to new degrees, defining their requirements and approving the courses that fulfill those requirements.  Each school relies upon a Committee on Instruction (CoI), or an equivalent faculty body, to ensure that its programs meet its standards of quality and contribute to its educational mission.  Therefore, every new program and every substantial change in an existing program, regardless of the level of the degree, must first be reviewed and approved by the CoI, or an equivalent, of the school in which it will be offered.  It also needs the approval of the dean of the school.
