Academic Support Units
'Academic Support Units' support the academic mission of the university and the delivery of academic programs. Proposers should review the information requirements for each unit to ensure the appropriate and complete information is included on the proposal form, and to understand the purpose of the review.

Some units should be consulted as part of the planning process ("Early Consultation" - II. Proposal Development and Consultation). All units should recieve a final copy of the proposal for review ("Final Review" - III. Faculty Approval and Academic Support Units), following which they will issue a letter of support.
