Trustee Approvals

If a proposed undergraduate program leads to a degree a School previously has not conferred, the Trustees must amend the University Statutes to allow the School to award that degree. Statutory amendments require consideration at two separate meetings of the Trustees. Additionally, if the proposed program will lead to a degree that has not previously been awarded in New York State, the New York Board of Regents must amend their rules before the University Trustees can act.
