Starting a center or institute

Groups interested in creating a new university center should refer to Stages to Developing and Maintaining a Successful Center to determine if this approach is the most appropriate and for guidance on next steps. If a group decides to go forward, a self-study is prepared using Guidelines for Proposal Development and the Proposed Center Budget Form.Groups interested in starting a college center, should contact the appropriate dean.
