The following material describes the procedures for the review of proposed minors at Iowa State University. The procedures provide for both faculty and administrative input at all levels. This document describes both the approval process and the information that should be provided in a program proposal.
The proposal to establish a new minor is initiated by faculty members. The establishment of an undergraduate minor requires approval by the department or sponsoring group, the appropriate college curriculum committee, the college faculty, the college dean, the Faculty Senate Curriculum Committee, the Faculty Senate, the Senior Vice President and Provost, and the President. The establishment of a graduate minor requires approval by the department or sponsoring group, the Graduate College's curriculum committee and Graduate Council, the Graduate Dean, the Senior Vice President and Provost, and the President. Minor proposals do not need approval by the Board of Regents, State of Iowa.
