Program Management Site Overview

The CIM Program Management site allows you to establish a new program, revise or inactivate an existing program. These proposals are then submitted through the appropriate workflow approval processes where approvers can edit, approve, or rollback the proposal. The Program Management site allows you to search for and view the program inventory. From here, you can also see the status of a program and whether or not it is in workflow.

Once a proposal has been submitted, the program cannot be modified from the Program Management site until the proposal has been approved. If a program has been submitted, you cannot submit a proposal for that same program until it has been fully approved.

  1. Search Box: There are several different ways to search for a program. Keep in mind that an asterisk is a wildcard and can be used at any place within your search terms to stand in for missing information. Searching with only an asterisk will return all courses in CIM.
    • Search by entering a program name using the asterisk (*)
      • e.g., Studio Art*
    • Search by keyword plus asterisk (*)
      • e.g., *art* will return any program with “art” in the title (e.g., Art History, Art Education, Earth Science, Integrated Language Arts)
  2. History Check Box: By selecting history, the search results will also include previously approved proposals in the search results. image
    • CIM History is a permanent record of the approved programs from the last time it went through the curricular approval process in CIM. History displays the approval path, workflow steps, roll back comments, and red/green mark up. The history search results only go back to the day CIM was implemented. Only proposals that have been completely approved will show up in the history. History is view only; it cannot be edited.
  3. Quick Searches: The “quick search” dropdown can be used to filter the search box and only show specific proposals based on status (e.g., new program, revised program, inactivated program).
  4. Workflow: The workflow column displays the step or role that the proposal is in the approval process. Clicking on the “workflow column” in the search results box will sort the information A-Z or Z-A order.
  5. Status: The status column shows the proposal type. Clicking on the “status column” in the search results box, will sort the information A-Z or Z-A order.
    • Blank: This indicates that the program exists, but it is not currently in the CIM proposal process.
    • Inactivated: This status indicates that a program has been proposed to be made inactive or is currently inactive.
    • Revised: This status indicates that a revision to an existing program has been submitted to the curricular process.
    • New: This status indicates that a proposal has been submitted to establish this program.
