Application and Review Process

A new University of Idaho entity can be created at any time during the academic year.

The process for creating Level I entities is the responsibility of the relevant deans and department heads and may vary unit to unit.

Level II and III entities undergo a more structured review and approval process. The process will vary only in the level of detail required in the plan and the required level of final approval. Phase I is a short white paper, followed by a Phase II Entity Plan.

The application process is as follows:

  1. Applicant prepares a short white paper (less than 5 pages, double-spaced, 12-point type, half-inch margins). See detailed white paper suggestions.
    Items to address in the paper include:
    1. Introduction and background
    2. Purpose and/or core focus
    3. Goals
    4. Key actors
    5. Justification for proposed entity level (I, II or III)
  2. Applicants submit white papers to the Vice President for Research and Economic Development
  3. Dean(s), vice president for research and the provost and executive vice president review white paper (Level II and III only).
  4. Provost’s Council reviews proposed or continuing Level II and III entities and provides input on viability, which is available for vice presidential review.
  5. The vice president for research informs applicants of the decision whether or not to proceed.
  6. Applicants invited to proceed have approximately 30 working days to develop a Phase II Entity Plan. Detailed instructions for developing an entity plan are available under Phase II Entity Plan Guidelines.
    1. The plan must be no more than 25 pages (8.5 by 11, double-spaced, 12-point type, half-inch margins).
    2. The plan includes strategic, operational and business components. Required topics for each plan component vary depending on entity level.
  7. Applicants submit Phase II Entity Plan to the Vice President for Research and Economic Development.
  8. Relevant deans review the Entity Plan (Level II and III).
  9. Provost’s Council reviews plan (Level II and III).
  10. The provost and executive vice president and vice president for research and economic development review plan (Level II and III).
  11. A panel of external experts may review the plan (Level III).
  12. Final review within the university:
    1. For Level II entities, the relevant deans, the provost and the vice president for research will review and decide whether to approve.
    2. For Level III entities, the president will review and decide whether to approve upon the recommendation of the provost and vice president for research.
  13. If an entity receives final approval, it will form advisory committees:
    1. For Level II entities, the provost and the vice president for research will appoint relevant deans and directors
    2. For Level III entities, the provost and the vice president for research will appoint deans, director and external board members.
  14. Where appropriate, a Notice of Intent will be prepared and submitted to the State Board of Education/Board of Regents of the University of Idaho.

Proposals for new entities may be submitted at any time and will be reviewed as they are submitted.

  • Maximum of five pages — that outlines the purpose of the proposed center or institute, its goals, key personnel and justification for its proposed rating. Submit white papers to vpresearch@uidaho.edu.
  • White papers reviewed by all of the deans as well as the vice presidents.
  • Decisions will be communicated, inviting full proposals of selected groups.
  • Full proposals will be reviewed by deans, vice presidents and, perhaps, several faculty committees. Level III proposals will also be reviewed by an outside set of experts.
