Program Initiation

Programs offered by CMU outside the state of Michigan are primarily initiated at the request of a corporation, an association, governmental agency or another organization, which serves as a sponsor of the program.

When planning a program, the Academic Program Team identifies student needs and determines needed courses, course formats, and advising schedules. The program format is determined by the number of interested students, the availability of faculty, the availability of instructional facilities, and, where pertinent, organizational work patterns. Arrangements are then made for instructors and for space and support resources.

Facilities and Equipment. At most out-of-state locations, office space, equipment and classroom space are provided on site through the cooperation of the program sponsor. Size and scope of facilities vary with the size of the program.
