How should decisions be made about what mode is appropriate for a specific course?

Decisions about course modes should be made collaboratively with your unit head, faculty, and where available, instructional designers and others who support the course that is being considered. Whenever possible, this collegial conversation should include all instructors who are teaching the course. The overarching responsibility and final decision stays with the chancellor or dean (or designee), who is responsible for ensuring that the portfolio is representative of the residential mission of the University.
