New in the 2023-24 Proposal

SSGPDPs are required to solicit substantive feedback from students and faculty at least once every two years. Beginning with the current proposal cycle, UCOP is requiring programs to document feedback from each student and faculty consulted using a specified template that includes:

  • The program name and short description
  • The current fee rate
  • The proposed fee rate and percent increase
  • Date of consultation
  • Type of consultation (e.g., email, town hall, focus group, etc.)
  • Feedback on the proposed fee level's appropriateness for the type of program and how it is operated
  • Feedback on whether the program fee is too high, just right, or too low

Examples of the student consultation template and faculty consultation template, as well as detailed instructions on how to complete the templates have been provided by UCOP as part of the call for proposals.

  • Evening/Weekend MBA
