ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UC SAN DIEGO (INCLUDING HEALTH SCIENCES)

SUBJECT:    Request for Proposals (RFP): Strategic Academic Program Development (SAPD) Initiative

I'm pleased to announce the second Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Strategic Academic Program Development (SAPD) Initiative:
http://academicaffairs.ucsd.edu/sso/sapd/ (Single Sign-On Required).

UC San Diego launched the SAPD Initiative in spring 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. The initial RFP yielded an outstanding set of proposals that were well aligned with the aims of the SAPD initiative. Proposals from the first RFP approved by the EVC for full development support include the following (a few additional programs are still under review):

. 3+2 Program in Engineered Structures and Systems (Structural Engineering)
. Pathway to Health Professions Program (Biological Sciences)
. Computational Social Science MAS (Social Sciences)
. Supporting K-12 Computing Educators in Diverse Contexts - Online (Education Studies)
. Precision Medicine MS - Online (Medicine)
. Drug Development and Product Management MS - Online (Skaggs School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences)

The SAPD call for proposals (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.) Program proponents are invited to submit by Friday, April 12, 2019 a response to one or more of the three RFP forms, including a model of program finances (SAPD Financial Model) for each offering.
