Campus Review of Independent Doctoral Degree
Program Proposals

AS-2724-05/AA - November 3-4, 2005

RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University (CSU) request that local campus senates review curricular processes in order to develop any revisions or new policies needed for review and approval of independent doctoral degree proposals.

RATIONALE: SB 724 grants the CSU the authority to independently offer the Doctor of Education degree in Educational Leadership. The earliest programs will have an initial incoming class of Fall 2007. Consequently, it is desirable that local campus policies be immediately established using campus governance procedures.

Having procedures in place for the review of other potential independent doctoral degree proposals is good practice.
