Collaborating on innovative, healthy, and student-focused programs
The University Program Planning Committee (UPPC) comprises academic and administrative leaders across the university, led by the provost. It was formed to consider recommendations from deans and standing curriculum committees within the Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs and the College.
The UPCC meets at least twice a year to consider these recommendations regarding program launch, closure, reinvestment, and monitoring. By considering all programs across the university, the UPPC guides the university in the best and most effective use of its operational resources, including infrastructure support, modality, course and program (re)development, educational technology, compliance and accreditation, communication, marketing, enrollment, and website development. The committee makes recommendations to the provost, whose decisions are then shared with the university.
