Most curricular proposals (Category I and Category II) require liaison with other academic units. The purposes of liaison are:

Feedback should be solicited from all campus units whose programs or students could be affected by the proposal and/or whose common subject matter pertains to the subject matter of the proposal (see list of OSU curriculum contacts). Email is an acceptable form of liaison (see sample letter or email of liaison).

It is common to include a statement in the cover memo that if no repsonse is received by a reasonable deadline, the assumption will be that the recipient has no objections.

Copies of liaison letters sent and all replies received should be attached to the proposal when it is submitted. The proposal should also include a memo addressing any concerns which surfaced during the liaison process.

For Category II course proposals, please also include:

For Category I program proposals, please include letters of liaison and/or support from other institutions with similar programs.
