Departmental and Center Review Procedures

The Academic Council will conduct periodic reviews of all departments in the Krieger and Whiting Schools. At the Council’s discretion, it will also review centers, institutes, and administrative units that, in its judgment, have a significant influence on the quality of the Schools’ academic programs.

Each department in KSAS and WSE will be reviewed approximately every five years, with centers and other departments being reviewed less frequently. This means that Council will review approximately six or seven departments each year.

Template for Submitting Proposals for New Degree and Certificate Programs

A proposal template was prepared by the Academic Affairs Committee of the Homewood Academic Council to assist faculty who are proposing new degree and certificate programs at the JHU Homewood Schools. Proposals are normally first reviewed sequentially by the appropriate curriculum committee of the school, by the Homewood Academic Council, by the JHU Council of Deans and the Provost and, finally, submitted by the Provost’s Office to the Maryland Higher Education Commission (MHEC) for review and endorsement.
