W1 - Navigating Substantive Change

Learn the basics of the substantive change review process. This workshop is designed to provide participants with the tools needed to assist their institutions with the development of substantive change proposals in order to incorporate the approval process into planning and resource allocation.  Any recent changes in federal and WSCUC policy will be discussed.  Examples of good practices and model elements, including resources and templates to help you get through the process successfully, will be shared. We will also look at common reasons why substantive change proposals are not approved and provide tools for avoiding these pitfalls. We will leave time at the end for individual questions about your upcoming proposals.
