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 dual-degree program, regardless of the level of the degrees, must first be reviewed and approved by the CoI's, or an equivalent, of the schools that will offer it.  The program also needs the approval of the deans of the participating schools.
