Intent to Plan Proposals

To increase communication, collaboration, and problem solving opportunities throughout the system and with the Board of Regents in the early stages of the program/center/institute development process, campuses must complete and submit an Intent to Plan. Intent to Plan documents will be removed from this website and considered halted upon the request of the proposing institution or after 18 months from the final review of the Intent to Plan, whichever comes first.

The submission of an Intent to Plan proposal does not guarantee the submission of a full Level II proposal, nor does the approval of an Intent to Plan proposal at any level guarantee the approval of the full Level II proposal.

Next Intent to Plan Due Date: June 25
*All Intent to Plans should be submitted to Joe Thiel.
