Outreach School

Department Chairs:  Interested in proposing a program for Outreach School delivery?

Program Development Overview

The Outreach School has developed a process to take in and evaluate proposals for new programs that require the school's delivery support.  The process is purposed to promote transparency, scalability, and consistency of operation.  The process was approved by the UW Deans' and Directors' Council in late April of 2013.

To submit a proposal, please complete the proposal template (available at #2 below), and submit the proposal via email to the Outreach School at

The proposal will be reviewed by a broad-based committee that includes members from the Outreach School and academic colleges that have experience developing and maintaining academic outreach degree and certificate programs. The committee will make every effort to respond to submissions in two months time. 

PLEASE NOTE: Proposals for new outreach degree and certificate programs must take into account at least 18 months lead time from the proposal committee's approval to the actual offering of degree/certificate program courses. 
Below is a list of documents that we hope will help you consider the varied dimensions of a new program proposal for either distance or UW-Casper delivery.

  1. Program Proposal Considerations:  Provides some background on the considerations for departments to make in writing a proposal for outreach delivery of a UW degree or certificate program.
