Regent Article 4, Policy 4 and Related APS Changes

On June 15, 2017, the Board of Regents approved changes to Article 4-Academic Organization and Program Planning (Previously, Organization of the Academic Units) of Regent Law and the related Regent policies relating to the organization of academic units at the University.  However, since these changes required the development of some new Administrative Policy Statements (APSs) and revisions to some existing APSs, the implementation of the approved revisions to Regent Law and Policies was delayed until the APS work could be completed.  This work is now finished.

Following a full review process, the President recently approved four new APSs (1038, 1039, 1040, 1041), revisions to three existing APSs (1008, 1019, 1026) and the elimination of one APS (1023). The revised Article 4-Academic Organization and Program Planning, new Regent Policies 4.A-Administration and Governance of Academic Units and 4.B-Academic Planning and Accountability, and all associated changes to APSs were effective January 1, 2018.
