Continuation of a Center or Institute


A newly approved Center or Institute will function initially for a three-year probationary period.  In the third year of the probationary period, the Provost will arrange for review of the Center or Institute and will make a decision about its continuation.  Centers of Institutes that continue to function beyond the three-year probationary period will undergo a review arranged by the Provost every five years.  At the time of review, the director or directors of the Center or Institute will complete a Request for Continuation form. All continuation requests must be prepared using the required template and budget form.

The Center and Institute approval and review process is coordinated by the Associate Provost for Academic Planning and Accountability, for more information call (502) 852-6169.
