Provide a detailed budget for this program on a yearly basis for a full Program cycle. Budget detail will include the following considerations: faculty development, personnel (program director, support staff, site facilitators, faculty effort), hardware/software, telecommunications, printing, supplies, travel, postage, production and reception facilities, equipment, course materials, special academic resources including library support, marketing, evaluations and assessments, etc. Consult with the Distance Learning Office to see if there are benefits to having that office provide some or all of the logistical support services. A modest contingency should be built into the estimated costs.
