1.5.A. Departments in the School of Medicine

The establishment or abolition of an academic department is recommended by the Dean to the Provost after consulting the Executive Committee of the School. If the Provost recommends approval, the proposal is forwarded to the Advisory Board, which submits a recommendation to the President. The President, in turn, recommends it to the Board of Trustees, which makes the final decision. The rationale for giving departmental status to an academic activity must be strong and well supported by documentation of programmatic need and meeting financial and other requirements.
