The Committee appointed to develop a Request to Plan Proposal for a Ph.D. degree program for the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences has developed the proposal with input from all four CAES departments. A meeting to discuss and vote on moving the Request to Plan Proposal forward has been scheduled for Tuesday, March 27th from 12:30-1:15 pm in A-16 CH Moore. The draft proposal will be sent to faculty at least five days prior to the meeting. Please note that you will be voting on whether or not to move the Request to Plan Proposal forward on campus and to the University of North Carolina System (formerly GA) for review and approval. Upon approval by the UNC System, the Committee will proceed with developing the full proposal ( Request to Establish) that will undergo additional reviews by the faculty, departments and University Curriculum Committee. In the event that you are unable to attend this meeting, you can submit your vote with any comment to me, firstname.lastname@example.org, and Dr. Giddings, email@example.com, prior to the meeting.
I look forward to seeing you on March 27th.
