An interim process for updating the 2011-2013 academic catalog for graduate programs is currently in development. The goal of the process is to collect current and accurate academic program information, and to do so in a way that the data can be used to populate the Program and Curriculum Approval System (PCAS) later in the spring.
The catalog Business Process Review team--made up of staff from University Relations, the Graduate School, and ASR--hosted meetings on November 30 and December 14 for catalog coordinators from all colleges. At the meetings, catalog coordinators:
- reviewed the past process for producing the Graduate School catalog
- reviewed the new degree approval process announced by the Provost's Office last May
- previewed a draft of an interim process, including roles
- previewed a draft form that individuals from academic programs will need to update
With the information gathered from these meetings, the catalog team is creating materials that will facilitate the updating of catalog information by the college catalog coordinators and the academic programs. The update process is expected to begin in January.
When the development of PCAS for graduate programs is complete and accurate program data has been collected, ASR staff will complete the first round of academic program data into PCAS.
If you have questions about the 2011-2013 graduate catalog, please contact Gayla Marty in the Graduate School.
