Criteria for Faculty-Led Programs

  • Any SF State faculty member may propose and lead the program regardless of faculty status or rank (tenure, tenure track, lecturer, retired).
  • The faculty member must have completed one year of service with SF State at the time the proposal is submitted.
  • All faculty members must have written approval from both their department chair and college dean.
  • Two faculty leaders may choose to work together and co-lead the program. The budget will need to be developed to ensure the program is able to cover the added costs associated with having a second program leader. Often times this means the minimum student enrollment will be higher or faculty leaders will need to be able to find economical ways of keeping program costs low, as to not make the price of the program prohibitive.
  • If each faculty leader is from a different academic department/college, approval is required from both academic department chairs and college deans.
  • The maximum student/faculty leader ratio is no more than 15 students for each faculty leader. If more than 15 students, then a second SF State faculty member must be appointed co-leader and meet all of the same requirements as the primary faculty leader.
