On behalf of the Faculty Senate, and subject to that body’s authority, the UA Little Rock Graduate and Undergraduate Councils will review and recommend action on new academic courses, programs, and degrees.

In academic units not organized into departments, colleges, or schools, routing will be according to analogous process certified to the appropriate council by the vice chancellor and provost. Recommendations of the councils are subject to review by the Faculty Senate upon decision of the Executive Committee of the Faculty Senate or upon petition signed by five or more senators and delivered to the president of the Faculty Senate within ten (10) calendar days of passage by the Graduate Council. Proposals not reviewed by the Faculty Senate or having passed senate review are routed to the vice chancellor and provost and chancellor, and for new degree programs, to the president, the Board of Trustees, and the Board of Higher Education.
