Academic programs and subject listings are associated with academic units. This relationship is critical in linking academic activity to the academic unit for purposes of administration, evaluation, governance, and resource allocation, among others.
All academic divisions and units.
Academic units must meet the standards of a department or department-like unit as defined in UW-805 Faculty Policies and Procedures Chapter 5, and be housed within an academic division per UW-803, Faculty Policies and Procedures Chapter 3. A record of any change made to an academic program or subject listing’s association with an academic unit must be documented and approved through governance.
A proposal to change the association between an academic program or subject listing and an academic unit must be originated by either the current or proposed unit. Memos that document faculty governance votes at the academic unit level and academic division level must accompany the proposal. A change to the academic unit for an academic program is made in Lumen Programs. A change to a subject listing is made through Lumen Structures.
If a change of academic home is embedded in a larger restructuring proposal, the proposal must include these same points.
