Modeled after Robert C. Dickeson's Prioritizing Academic Programs and Services but customized to NMU
NMU's mission, vision, and strategic plan will be the guides for decision-making
Evaluation of all academic and non-academic programs and services, and resources allocated to them
Additional investments will be made in programs that are, or have the potential, to perform exceptionally well
Academic program review
Support functions review
Final, public report at completion
Task forces will make recommendations, not implementations
SRA Implementation Task Force (members: all Vice Presidents, Dean of Students, Assoc. Provost, Asst. V.P. Budget & Finance) will make implementation recommendations to the President. Implementation decisions will adhere to contracts and policies.
Focus on Data
Data will be collected and updated throughout the process
A database will be created that can be updated annually, through future strategic resource allocation processes
All facets of the process will be shared widely and updated regularly, with the exception of the deliberations regarding individual programs and other inner workings of the task forces.
