Sponsored Program

Meanings vary from campus to campus. 1) The most common, and preferred, meaning is as a synonym for an Institutionally Administered Program, 2) Some institutions use it instead to mean an Approved Program or an Affiliated Program. 3) A narrower usage applies the term to only a subset of Institutionally Administered Programs such as those operated under the auspices of a department, division or unit (for example, faculty-led). 4) Still other institutions apply it to all programs that have some ongoing relationship to the institution, i.e., every category except an Outside Program.
