Strategic Academic Program Development

UC San Diego launched the Strategic Academic Program Development (SAPD) Initiative in the spring of 2018 to catalyze the development of academic offerings that enhance the experience and outcomes of students, strengthen UC San Diego’s reputation in research and education, and grow institutional revenues to sustain investments in the education and research enterprise.

Submissions for the current SAPD Request for Proposals (RFP) will be accepted beginning February 8, 2019 through April 19, 2019. The SAPD RFP is divided into three sub-calls, each focused on a segment of opportunity: (A) graduate offerings (credit and non-credit); (B) concurrent enrollment; and (C) summer programs (credit and non-credit.) SAPD Support Team members, Teaching + Learning Commons, and EVC office staff are available to provide guidance for faculty and academic unit engagement in innovative academic program development. We look forward to your applications and questions.
