More and more institutions across the country are focusing on reallocating existing resources in addition to generating new resources. But such an initiative requires a systematic, academically responsible approach to ensure success.
This highly interactive webinar engages participants in the how and why of choosing criteria and assessing weights, avoiding pitfalls and anticipating likely push-back, and integrating this process with your other institution-wide strategies.
"Most institutions can no longer afford to be what they’ve become."
Robert C. Dickeson
Co-presenters Robert C. Dickeson, president emeritus, University of Northern Colorado, and Peter Eckel, vice president for Governance and Leadership Programs at the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB), provide their unique perspectives on academic program prioritization and cover what administrators and boards/trustees need to know and do.
They will help you think through your own institution’s approach to prioritization based on real-life experiences of hundreds of campuses.
Dickeson’s book, Prioritizing Academic Programs and Services (Jossey-Bass Publishers, 1999, 2010) was based on his extensive consulting experiences including serving several hundred two- and four-year colleges (private and public) and corporations ranging from hospitals to bank holding companies. Eckel has written and spoken extensively on academic leadership, institutional change and campus governance. His most recent book is Changing Course: Making the Hard Decisions to Eliminate Academic Programs.
