Academic Program Resources
This section is for CUNY faculty and staff involved in the development and modification of academic programs. Its purpose is to provide easy access to the most updated version of guidelines and forms required in the process. We welcome all suggestions for improving this site as well as for additional materials you would like to see included.

A special Supplement to the Handbook addresses specific requirements for the development and modification for Teacher Education Programs. »
This manual will assist you with format and language choices when presenting information in the Chancellor's University Report.

The Office of Program Review, Articulation and Transfer is also responsible for overseeing the application and waiver of various bylaws to academic appointments, faculty degree equivalencies and compensation. Click the header for this section to be redirected to a page containing a memo regarding the bylaw application and waivers and the forms associated with those actions as well as a form for a request for a Salary Above Base (SAB).
The Office of Program Review, Articulation and Transfer is also responsible for coordinating the central administration's vetting of individuals to whom any CUNY college or school wishes to award an honorary degree prior to those requests being voted on by CAPPR and the full Board of Trustees. Click the head for this section to be redirected to a page containing a guide to submissions, the necessary form and the CAPPR deadline schedule. The deadline schedule is also available in the column to the right.
The calendar serves as a reminder of the deadlines by which a proposal must be fully approved and completed in order to be considered for a presentation at the Committee on Academic Program, Policy, and Research (CAPPR) of the CUNY Board of Trustees. The University Office of Academic Affairs is committed to facilitating this process and helping the colleges prepare a proposal that is carefully focused and well-defined in terms of the College's and the University's goals. Colleges are encouraged to consult with the Director of Program Review as early as possible in order to work out a tentative timetable. »
