Centers and Institutes
by Martin, Kenyatta — last modified Jun 05, 2013 12:22 PM
A Board of Trustees approved Center or Institute is an entity, usually multidisciplinary, that has a specialized mission related to research, service, instruction, or some combination of these areas of activity. Generally, Centers have a single focus, while Institutes are broader in scope and may have several Centers operating under their aegis. However, no degree- or certificate-granting academic programs can be administered by Centers or Institutes, and no probationary or tenured faculty appointments can be made through Centers or Institutes. Participation is by free association and should be part of a faculty member’s work plan.
The Center and Institute approval and review process is coordinated by the Assistant Provost for Academic Planning and Accountability, for more information call (502) 852-5705.
