The Deputy Provost (Academic Planning and Programs) oversees the processes by which new academic programs are introduced, current programs are modified or discontinued, and professional academic programs are assessed by accreditation agencies. Because academic program changes often require the approval of Manitoba Education and Training, as well as the Senate and the Board of Governors, Deans and Directors should contact the Deputy Provost (Academic Planning and Programs) as soon as program modifications are under serious consideration
