Academic Governance

Academic Governance at the University of Utah

The University of Utah has a strong, effective, and multi-layered academic governance process. New ideas and proposals benefit from being vetted through a well-established system of curriculum committees, college councils, university councils, the University President, the President’s Cabinet, the Academic Senate, the Board of Trustees, and the State Board of Regents. The links, images, and videos to the right illustrate the process of how to start a new degree, center, or committee and how policies and rules get created or revised.
