PROGRAM REORGANIZATION GUIDELINES
(Approved: BFC 11/18/80)
1. Whenever a school or the College reaches the state in its routine internal/external review and evaluation where the possibility of program reorganization or elimination is contemplated for a given unit, the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs must be notified and thereafter kept informed of the progress of that review and evaluation.
2. It will be the responsibility of the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs, in consultation with his or her Curricular Advisory Committee and the Educational Policies Committee of the Bloomington Faculty Council, to consider whether there is sufficient campus concern in such cases to warrant further consideration of the proposed reorganization or elimination.
3. In the event that such a campus concern exists, the Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs shall articulate the concern to the school or the College committees and administrators involved for their information. The dean shall use his or her good offices to reconcile the concern with other interests of the campus.
4. The Educational Policies Committee recommends that divisions on this campus develop orderly, systematic procedures for the review and evaluation of programs being considered for possible reorganization or elimination, guidelines that manifest the same concern for the needs and obligations of all parties as is evidenced in the procedures and practices currently being developed by the College of Arts and Sciences.
