You may contact the Senate Office if you have questions in regards to the information provided on this page or in regards to developing a proposal.

(all new degrees and some changes in degrees)

Proposals for new degrees and changes in degrees are sometimes reviewed by the CUNY Committee on Academic Program, Policy, and Research (CAPPR) before they receive approval by the CUNY Board. These proposals must also be approved by the Hunter Senate and Senate curriculum committees.  However, proposals submitted for CAPPR review are submitted to CUNY directly by the department or school.  Below is CAPPR's Fall schedule.
