Section 3 - Implementing the Academic Program

Introduction

Your proposal for a new communication sciences and disorders (CSD) program has been approved! The excitement continues, and making the proposal a reality is your new challenge. Framing that challenge is contingent upon the degree of financial support that your proposal received from the institution. It is essential that the institution provide adequate financial support for the establishment of the CSD program so that the program can achieve its stated mission, goals, and objectives.

Some program proposals receive full approval and can be developed based on the original proposal. Others may receive approval with the proviso that the program be implemented in progressive stages. The next section describes specific information about budget allocation and administration, faculty, curriculum development, models of education, physical facilities, equipment needs, human resources, and library resources that are necessary to implement your newly approved program.
