					             GUIDELINES FOR DEVELOPMENT OF
                NEW ACADEMIC PROGRAMS


Academic Programs that must be approved by THEC

In accordance with Chapter 179 of the Legislative Act creating the Higher Education
Commission in 1967, the Commission has the statutory responsibility to review and
approve new academic programs, off-campus extensions of existing academic
programs, new academic units, and new instructional locations for public institutions of
higher education in the State of Tennessee. New academic programs requiring THEC
approval are those that differ from currently approved programs in level of degree or
major offered, as reflected in the institution’s catalog and the Commission’s academic
inventory, subject to specified provisions.

An academic program is a for-credit curriculum that leads to a new degree or major,
excluding minors, sub-majors, tracks, concentrations, options and/or graduate
certificates.

Criteria for New Academic Programs that must be approved by THEC

At a minimum, proposals for new academic programs must meet the following criteria:

Mission             Proposed new programs must adhere to the role and scope as set
                    forth in the approved mission of the institution.

Curriculum          The curriculum should be adequately structured to meet the stated
                    objectives of the program, and reflect breadth, depth, theory, and
                    practice appropriate to the discipline and the level of the degree.
                    The undergraduate curriculum should also include a limited number
                    of courses to satisfy General Education requirements and should
                    be compatible with accreditation, where applicable, and meet the
                    criteria for articulation and transfer.

Academic            The admission, retention, and graduation standards should be
Standards           clearly stated, be compatible with institutional and governing board
                    policy, and encourage high quality.

Faculty             Current and/or anticipated faculty resources should ensure a
                    program of high quality. The number and qualifications of faculty
                    should meet existing institutional standards and should be
                    consistent with external standards, where appropriate.


                                            1
Library           Current and/or anticipated library resources should be adequate to
Resources         support a high-quality program and should meet recognized
                  standards for study at a particular level or in a particular field where
                  such standards are available.

Administration/   The organizational placement and the administrative responsibility
Organization      for the program should be clearly defined and designed to promote
                  success of the program.

Support           All other support resources—existing and/or anticipated—should be
Resources         adequate to support a high quality program. This would include
                  clear statements of clerical personnel and/or equipment needs, and
                  arrangements for clinical or other affiliations necessary for the
                  program.

Facilities        Existing and/or anticipated facilities should be adequate to support
                  a high quality program. New and/or renovated facilities required to
                  implement the program should be clearly outlined by amount and
                  type of space, costs identified, and source of costs.

Need and          Evidence should be provided that a proposed new program
Demand            contributes to meeting the priorities/goals of the institution’s
                  academic or master plan, why the institution needs the program,
                  and why the State needs graduates from the program.

                  Student Demand. Evidence of student demand, normally in the
                  form of surveys of potential students and enrollment in related
                  programs at the institution, should be adequate to expect a
                  reasonable level of productivity.

                  Employer Need/Demand. Evidence of sufficient employer
                  demand/need, normally in the form of anticipated openings in an
                  appropriate service area (that may be national, regional, or local), in
                  relation to existing production of graduates for that service area, is
                  required. Evidence may include the results of a needs assessment,
                  employer surveys, current labor market analyses, and future
                  workforce projections. Where appropriate, evidence should also
                  demonstrate societal need and employers’ preference for
                  graduates of the proposed program over persons having alternative
                  existing credentials and employer’s willingness to pay higher
                  salaries to graduates of the proposed program.

No Unnecessary    Where other similar programs may serve the same potential
Duplication       student population, evidence should demonstrate that the proposed
                  program is sufficiently different from the existing programs or that

                                          2
                   access to the existing programs is sufficiently limited to warrant
                   initiation of a new program. The proposal should explain why it is
                   more cost effective or otherwise in the best interests of the State to
                   initiate a new program rather than meet the demand through
                   arrangements, (e.g., collaborative means with another institution,
                   distance education technologies, Academic Common Market,
                   consortia, etc.).

Cooperating        For programs needing the cooperation of other institutions
Institutions       (including government, education, health, and business), evidence
                   of the willingness of these institutions to participate is required.

Diversity          Evidence of the program’s ability to enhance diversity is required.

Assessment/and     Evidence should be provided to demonstrate that careful evaluation
Evaluation         of the program being proposed would be undertaken periodically.
                   Information must be provided to indicate the schedule for program
                   assessments or evaluations, (including program reviews associated
                   with Performance Funding), those responsible for conducting such
                   reviews, and how the results are to be used. Where appropriate,
                   professional organizations that accredit programs should be
                   identified and any substantive change that may require a SACS
                   review should be indicated.

Cost/Benefit       The benefit to the State should outweigh the cost of the Program.
                   Institutions should estimate the effect on funding caused by the
                   implementation of the program. Detailed costs should be provided
                   on forms required for consideration of new programs. These
                   details should include reallocation plans, grants, gifts, or other
                   external sources of funding/partnerships. Evidence that program
                   costs may be met from internal reallocation or from other non-state
                   sources such as gifts and grants, instead of being met from
                   additional Formula dollars, will be viewed favorably.

by the System Academic Affairs office

1.    Establishment of any Graduate Certificate of Credit included in the Academic
      Inventory.

2.    Establishment, addition, deletions, consolidations or other changes involving

         format.

Procedures

     •   Intent-to-Plan Notification

Prior to the establishment of a new academic program, the Chancellor or Vice President
must notify the UT System Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Success.
Actions requiring THEC approval must be introduced by the UT Vice President for
Academic Affairs and Student Success by sending THEC an “intent-to-plan” notice.
This notification should be accomplished as early as possible in the planning phase.
The “intent-to-plan” notice should include the following:

         1.     The nature, purpose and scope of the intended action.

         2.     The expected date upon which the completed proposal will be submitted.

         3.     The intended implementation date.

         4.     A statement of total estimated cost for the proposal and anticipated source
                of funding.

     •   Campus Approval

A proposal for a new academic program should follow campus approval protocols.
Normally, these include check-offs (as appropriate) by the department, college,
undergraduate/graduate council, faculty senate, academic/student affairs officer, etc.

     •   Proposal Development and Process

After THEC is notified of the institution’s “intent-to-plan,” the campus must complete a
formal proposal. A template has been developed and is included as Appendix A. Drafts
of the proposal should be shared with the Vice President for Academic Affairs and
Student Success as they evolve. The Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student

                                              4
Success works with THEC throughout the process. The template should be used with
all program proposals—those that require THEC approval and those that require only
System Academic Affairs approval.

   •   External Review

All proposals for new graduate academic programs require a written consultant report.
Proposals for Master’s degree programs will ordinarily be reviewed by one external
consultant; proposals for doctoral programs will be reviewed by two external
consultants. Consultants will file a written report on the quality of the proposed program
and respond to any other relevant questions or issues addressed to them by UT System
or THEC staff. A site visit is typically required. Some undergraduate proposals also will
need to be subjected to external evaluation. In seeking this external review, campuses
should work with the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Success as early
as possible during the development of each proposal.

While it is the responsibility of the campus to provide and support such consultants, the
selection will be made by the UT Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student
Success and THEC staff, in consultation with the institution. All costs associated with
an external review are borne by the institution submitting the proposal.

   •   Board of Trustees and THEC Approval

After completion of the campus approval process, proposals will be submitted to the UT
Board of Trustees through the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student
Success. Subsequent to Board approval, proposals are transmitted to THEC for final
approval. The Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Success will maintain
communication with the THEC staff relative to the proposal until formal action has been
taken. The Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Success will apprise the
campus of the program’s status throughout the process.

Note: New academic programs or units that do not require BOT or THEC approval
should follow the same format as those for which BOT and THEC approval are required
(see Appendix A).

                          The University of Tennessee


Campuses must notify the Vice President for Academic Affairs of their intent to propose
a new program. This should be done as early as possible in the planning phase for new
programs. THEC requires early notification that specifically references the institution’s
Mission Statement. Drafts of proposals should be shared with THEC as they evolve.

All proposals for new graduate programs require a written consultant report, and some
undergraduate proposals also will need to be subjected to external evaluation. In
seeking this external review, campuses should work with the Vice President for
Academic Affairs as early as possible during the development of each proposal. At a
minimum, each consultant report must specifically address the general THEC policies
shown in bold in the new academic proposal format document.

Program Description.

     A.   Mission - The program should be consistent with the approved Mission
          Statement of the institution. Institutional commitment of resources
          should be consistent with the centrality and level of priority as
          described in the program proposal.

          1.   Present the goals of the program and relate each to the institution's
               Mission Statement and other pertinent documents (e.g., master plan).
               From your campus's most recently approved Mission Statement, include
               the specific citation under which this program is being proposed. (i.e.,
               under which campus goal(s) or objective(s) will the proposed program's
               goal(s) fit?)

          2.   Present the specific objectives of the program. The objectives should be
               stated in a manner to provide for later performance review and
               evaluation by the institution. For example, objectives may include
               specification of the target clientele along with projected student
               outcomes: academic, professional, personal, societal and any other
               intended outcomes in areas such as research and public service.

          3.   Take care to show how the proposed program is consistent with THEC
               statewide MasterPlan.

     B.   Curriculum - The curriculum should be adequately structured to meet
          the stated objectives of the program and should reflect the breadth,
          depth, theory, and practice appropriate to the discipline and the level of
          the degree. The curriculum should comply with accreditation
          standards, where applicable. The undergraduate curriculum should
          also include a limited number of courses to satisfy General Education
          requirements and should be compatible with accreditation, where
          applicable, and meet the criteria for articulation and transfer.

          Academic Standards–The admission, retention, and graduation
          standards should be clearly stated, be compatible with existing
          policies, and be designed to encourage high quality.

          Description of program as it will appear in catalogue or bulletin:

          1.   Present a general description of the degree program and delineate the
               admissions, retention and graduation requirements.

          2.   List the core and sub-major course requirements and electives,
               indicating course number and credit hours.



                                            9
     3.   Present a typical curriculum for one program cycle, including one for
          each sub-major where applicable.

     4.   Present course descriptions for all new courses proposed.

C.   Evaluation - Evidence should be provided to demonstrate that careful
     evaluation of the program will be undertaken periodically. Information
     must be provided to indicate the schedule for program assessments or
     evaluations (including program reviews associated with Performance
     Funding), those responsible for conducting them, and how the results
     are to be used. Where appropriate, professional organizations that
     accredit programs should be identified and any substantive change
     that may require a SACS review should be indicated.

     Graduate Programs. New graduate programs will be evaluated
     according to the principles set forth in Tennessee Council of Graduate
     Schools’ "Components of Quality for Master’s Programs” and
     " Components of Quality for Doctoral Programs.”

     Specify the methods, instruments and standards that will be used in the
     future to ascertain the extent to which each of the objectives of the program
     is implemented. Indicate, in addition:

     1. who will be responsible for the evaluation;

     2. the frequency of evaluation;

     3. who will receive the evaluation results.

D.   Accreditation: Give the name of the professional organization that accredits
     programs of the kind proposed. Indicate:

     1. if and when accreditation will be sought or,

     2. if not sought, why not.

E.   Related undergraduate programs within your institution.

     1. Productivity of your institution's related degrees: Indicate the number of
        undergraduate/graduate degrees awarded, student credit hours generated
        and majors enrolled in the program specialty or in a related specialty over
        the past three years. (Refer to CIP/THEC Minor Taxonomy if possible.)

     2. Accreditation status of related programs: Indicate whether the program in
        the specialty is accredited. If it is not accredited, indicate why it is not.


                                       10
F. Demand/Need for the Program - Present evidence in the categories
presented below. Evidence should be provided that a proposed new
program contributes to meeting the priorities/goals of the institution’s
academic or master plan, why the institution needs that program, and why
the state needs graduates from that particular program. Evidence should
show program need sufficient to justify institutional allocation/reallocation
of state resources. Categories chosen should be appropriate to the field of the
proposed program. For categories not selected, indicate why they are not
appropriate.

1.   Academic or institutional need evidence: One may show here, for example,
     how the new program is needed to academically complement and support a
     cluster of other existing programs or to advance the study of the field
     proposed.

2.   Student Demand - Evidence of student demand, normally in the form of
     surveys of potential students and enrollment in related programs at the
     institution, should be adequate.

     Survey(s) may be presented. Include a copy of the questionnaire(s), a
     description of the population sampled, the data compiled, and the
     interpretation of that data. (The population sample should be congruent with
     the program objectives and with the service area of the sponsoring
     institution.)

3.   Employer Need - There should be evidence of sufficient employer need,
     normally in the form of anticipated openings in an appropriate service
     area (which may be national, regional, or local--depending on the
     program being proposed), in relation to existing production or
     graduates for that service area. Evidence may include the results of a
     needs assessment, employer surveys, current labor market analyses,
     and future workforce projections. Where appropriate, evidence should
     also demonstrate societal need and employers’ preference for
     graduates of the proposed program over persons having alternative
     existing credentials and employers’ willingness to pay higher salaries
     to graduates of the proposed program.

     a.   Appropriate workforce studies (local, regional, statewide, or national)
          may be used. Doctoral programs should show justification in all
          geographical areas above.

          (1.) For surveys made by the institution, include a copy of the survey(s),
               a description of the population sampled, the data compiled, and the
               interpretation of that data. (The population surveyed should be
               congruent with the program objectives and with the service area of


                                      11
                       the sponsoring institution.)

                   (2.) For surveys made by external agencies (e.g., local, regional, and
                        national surveys), include survey results, interpretation and
                        application of results to the program proposed, and reference
                        citation to the document in which the survey has been published.

              b.   Letters of direct employer support may be used. Include letters
                   indicating the availability of positions for graduates of the proposed
                   programs signed by executives authorized to make employment
                   decisions. Letters of encouragement, congratulations, or good will from
                   business, industry, or others may be included but have little significance
                   in demonstrating employer need.
              c. Societal need evidence: An example of such evidence is the need for
                 nurse clinicians to meet some calculated ratio of nurses to patients or to
                 population which is considered to be professionally desirable or ideal.

              d. Other evidence of need: If appropriate, present evidence of types of need
                 not included above.

     G.       Diversity & Access - The program should not impede the state’s
              commitment to diversity and access in public higher education. A
              statement should be provided as to how the proposed program would
              enhance diversity and access.

     H.       Estimated size of Program

     1.       Estimates of headcount and full-time equated enrollment and number of
              graduates: Complete Table 1 below:

                                              TABLE 1
                                         SIZE OF PROGRAM

Provide yearly estimates as follows: Associate Degrees = 3 years; Bachelor's Degrees = 5 years;
Master's Degrees = 3 years; Doctoral Degrees = 4 years.
         2.   Basic assumptions used in estimating size of program: Assumptions should

                                                12
          be related to the justification of need in Section F and to other supportive
          data such as the size of similar programs in other institutions in the state. If
          the program is designed to articulate with other areas of programming,
          describe the Articulation Agreements and (other) institutions required for the
          projected articulation.

I.   No Unnecessary Duplication - Where other similar programs may serve the
     same potential student population, evidence should be demonstrated that
     the proposed program is sufficiently different from the existing programs or
     that access to the existing programs is sufficiently limited to warrant
     initiation of a new program. The proposal should explain why it is more
     cost effective or otherwise in the best interests of the state to initiate a new
     program rather than meet the demand through other arrangements (e.g.,
     collaborative means with another institution, distance education
     technologies, Academic Common Market, Distance Learning Technologies,
     Consortia).

          Location of Comparable Programs in Tennessee:

          1. list comparable programs (public and private) by institution;

          2. explain in detail why the objectives of the proposed program cannot be
             met by each of the listed programs.



          Note: Size projections should be conservative; THEC will
                compare projections vs. actual data and programs not
                meeting projections will be closely monitored.



J.   Faculty - Current and/or anticipated faculty resources should ensure a
     program of high quality. The number and qualifications of faculty should be
     consistent with external standards where appropriate.

     1.   Faculty currently employed: Complete Table 2 below, providing the
          requested information on all currently employed faculty who will teach one or
          more of the courses in the major. Do not include faculty who will teach
          support courses such as general education curriculum requirements.

 Total FTE New Faculty Needed in Program:



K.   Administration/Organization - The organizational placement and the
     administrative responsibility for the program should be clearly defined and
     designed to promote success of the program.




                                                14
     Administrative Resources.

     1.   Location of program in administrative structure:

          a. Indicate if a new organizational unit will be created for this program.

          b.   Specify the name of the department and/or division housing the new
               program.

          c.   Show how this department, etc. is located in the larger organizational
               structure of the institution.

     2.   Program Administrator:

          a.   Indicate the title (for example, Chairperson, Director, Coordinator) of the
               person who will have immediate responsibility for administering the
               program.

          b.   If this administrator is yet to be hired, indicate the projected hiring date.

          c.   Indicate the percentage of time required of the administrator.

L.   Library Resources - Current and/or anticipated library resources should be
     adequate to support a high-quality program.

     1.   If available, compare an appropriate library standard for quality and quantity
          to the projected library resources of the proposed program. Identify the
          source of the standard used.

     2.   Indicate the projected budget for library expenditures by the institution for the
          proposed program over the next five years.

M. Support Resources - All other support resources–existing and/or
   anticipated–should be adequate to support a high-quality program. This
   would include clear statements of non-faculty personnel needed, equipment
   needed, and arrangements for clinical or other affiliations necessary for the
   program.

     1.   Cooperating Institutions--For those programs needing the cooperation
          of other institutions (including government, education, health, and
          business), evidence of the willingness of the other institutions to
          participate is required (if applicable):

          a.   List any clinical or internship affiliations (for example, hospitals or clinics
               for nursing programs) required for the program and identify those


                                             15
               agencies with which arrangements have been made to provide these
               experiences.

          b.. Append letters from the above agencies indicating their willingness to
              affiliate with the institution.

     2.   Facilities - Existing and/or anticipated facilities should be adequate to
          support a high-quality program. New and/or renovated facilities
          required to implement the program should be clearly outlined by
          amount and type of space and the costs identified.

          a.   Indicate any new instructional facilities (lecture rooms, laboratories, etc.)
               and/or faculty offices needed for the program.

          b. Indicate how these new facilities will be provided.

          c.   Indicate if Capital Outlay requests related to this program will be
               submitted this year or within the next five years.

     3.   Instructional Equipment: Itemize any specialized instructional equipment
          needed for the program and provide the cost of each item over $500.

     4.   Support Personnel: Indicate any additional clerical or other support
          personnel required to operate the program, including the position,
          employment status (Full-time/Part-time), salary and year to be appointed for
          each person to be hired.

N.   Cost/Benefit - The benefit to the state should outweigh the cost of the
     program. Institutions should estimate the effect on funding caused by the
     implementation of the program. Detailed costs should be provided on
     forms required for consideration of new programs. These details should
     include reallocation plans, grants, gifts, or other external sources of
     funding/partnerships. Evidence that program costs may be met from
     internal reallocation or from other non-state sources such as gifts and
     grants, instead of being met from additional Formula dollars, will be viewed
     favorably.

     Cost Estimates and Sources of Funding.

     1.   Estimates of Cost: Provide the information requested in the Excel
          spreadsheet contained at the end of this template, using the following
          definitions and instructions. Program cost information must accurately reflect
          one-time and recurring costs over the implementation cycle. Text and
          information for the spreadsheet should project new costs to:



                                            16
              a. include all those costs incurred as a consequence of initiating the
                 new proposed program;

              b. indicate new costs for complete program cycle plus one year
                 (bachelor’s = 5 years; master’s = 3 years; doctorates = 4 years);

              c.   project personnel costs inclusively for every implementation year
                   (i.e., not just each person's first year of employment);

              d.   define recurring costs as actual new costs above what the
                   institution would bear without the program being proposed;

              e.   if existing full-time faculty are partially reassigned to the proposed
                   program, project all costs for part-time faculty needed to replace
                   them in the existing program(s);

              f.   the first fiscal year in which additional funds are to be expended is
                   considered to be the same year in which enrollment is expected to
                   begin;

              g.   revenue sources should be identified and cited to the extent
                   possible. THEC monitors new programs during their initial years,
                   so it may be necessary to adjust both costs and revenues.

O.   Costs/Productivity of Recently-Initiated Programs - Institutions with
     existing programs that fall markedly short of projected goals as approved
     in program proposals should submit an explanation of the shortfall and a
     discussion of the future expectations to accompany program progress
     reports.

     1.   List all programs approved by THEC for your institution for the previous ten
          (10) years.

     2.   For each listed program, show its approval date, implementation date, and
          its annual projected (from the approved proposal) and actual FTE
          enrollments and graduates.

     3.   For each listed program, show its annual projected cost (from the approved
          proposal) and actual budget.

P.   Consultant - All proposals for new graduate programs require a written
     consultant report, and some undergraduate proposals also will need to be
     subjected to external evaluation. In seeking this external review, campuses
     should work with the Vice President for Academic Affairs and Student Success
     as early as possible during the development of each proposal.


                                           17
1.   List the names of advisers used in planning the new program or give the
     names and addresses of 3 consultants from outside the state who might
     review the program.

2.   If a consultant has been used, append consultant reports, along with his/her
     resume, to the program proposal.

3.   List the names and positions of the members of the planning or advisory
     committee used to develop the proposal.

Five-year projections are required for baccalaureate and post-baccalaureate programs and certificates.
Three-year projections are required for associate degrees and undergraduate certificates. Projections
should include cost of living increases per year.
