Presentation: ULM's Substantive Change Policy: Expectations for Employees

• Every September and February, the University Accreditation Liaison will deliver this presentation to the following groups: (1) President's Executive Council, (2) Academic Affairs Dean's Council, and (3) University Curriculum Committee.

• Academic deans should use this online presentation to discuss the Substantive Change Policy with program administrators in their colleges. Program faculty should consult with their academic dean before proposing a major curriculum change to ensure the change adheres to SACSCOC guidelines.



Many of ULM's colleges, schools, departments and programs which make up the university are accredited by specialized or professional accrediting agencies.

The University of Louisiana at Monroe College of Health and Pharmaceutical Sciences School’s Doctor of Pharmacy program has been given the status of Accredited with Probation by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, 135 South LaSalle Street, Suite 4100, Chicago, IL 60603, 312/664-3575; FAX, 312/664-4652, web site www.acpe-accredit.org, for partial or non-compliance with the following standards: Standard No. 8: Organization and Governance; Standard No. 11: Interprofessional Education (IPE); Standard No. 18: Faculty and Staff—Quantitative Factors; and Standard No. 23: Financial Resources. For an explanation of the program’s Accredited with Probation status, consult the Office of the Dean or ACPE.

The accreditation status of the University of Louisiana at Monroe’s School of Pharmacy was affirmed through June 30, 2022; however, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) placed the School on probation on July 11, 2017 due to issues with four of the twenty-five standards. These standards address the organizational structure of our program, financial resources, quantity of faculty, and interprofessional education.

Since notification of ACPE’s decision, the following steps have been taken, many of which were in progress prior to receiving the notification:

It’s important to note that none of these standards are related to the curriculum or clinical rotations, the quality of our faculty, or progression rates, and that our status will next be considered by ACPE at their January 2018 meeting.
