Some programs may remain in the Graduate School

| No Comments

Some interdisciplinary programs with homes in more than one college may remain in the Graduate School. Ownership, administration, funding, and oversight will be in the colleges, similar to all other graduate programs. The Graduate School will appear on the transcript as the degree-granting unit.

For each interdisciplinary program, a signed memorandum of understanding (MOU) among all collegiate owners must be in place. The MOU must address all issues relating to ownership, administration, program support, funding, policy, curriculum, degree requirements, and oversight.

A group of representatives from each college are meeting to address the procedures for creating these MOUs, as well as other issues. You can find updates from their meetings here


Corrections were made to this post on February 7, 2011, to reflect that interdisciplinary programs may remain in the Graduate School. This will be determined by the collegiate partners on a program-by-program basis. The process will also involve memoranda of understanding, not memoranda of agreement.

Interdisciplinary collegiate representatives

November 16, 2010

A group of interdisciplinary collegiate representatives was formed in fall 2010 to discuss implications of restructuring for interdisciplinary graduate programs and provide input as well as guidance during this process.

The interdisciplinary college representatives met for the first time on November 16. Upcoming meetings are posted on the Graduate School dates and deadlines calendar for 2010-11.
