President Mercer has indicated that all new graduate programs must meet the following criteria:
- They must demonstrate a clear societal need;

- They may not drain resources from the undergraduate program.
In addition, new adult and graduate programs must develop detailed enrollment and budget models so that they can serve as independent cost-revenue centers.
