GCD: Graduate Curriculum Development INTRO

Academic program development includes the processes associated with the development, review, and approval of new academic programs, changes to existing programs, as well as changes to policies and procedures affecting graduate programs. Most of the rules governing academic program development arise from the Arizona Board of Regents (ABOR), the ASU University Senate, the University Graduate Council or Graduate College.

The Graduate Academic Programs area assists units with curriculum development, maintains graduate program archives, coordinates the activities of the University Graduate Council, and intends to serve as a resource for units regarding policy and procedures governing graduate education at ASU.

The Provost’s office also maintains a curriculum development website with links to important resources such as the curriculum workflow calendar, CAPC, University Senate meeting dates, academic plan and submission information.
