Academic Agreement and Project Advisory Group (AAPAG)

AAPAG streamlines the review process for complex academic agreements, such as dual degree arrangements or those with complex administrative and legal components.

AAPAG comprises representatives of key administrative offices, and functions in both informal and formal ways.  Faculty and administrators proposing complex agreements may bring materials to AAPAG for early guidance about how best to proceed with developing the project, or the group may meet in order to resolve administrative conflicts that have emerged in the normal electronic agreement review (e-MOU) process.   It provides the opportunity to work out questions or concerns with multiple parties all at once.

AAPAG’s core members include:

  • Eve Dauer – Registrar
  • Cody Edwards – Associate Provost for Graduate Education
  • Renate Guilford – Associate Provost for Enrollment Planning & Administration
  • Michelle Marks – Vice Provost for Academic Affairs
