Criteria Survey Results

APC and RSB criteria reviewNIU’s program prioritization process must reflect the unique character of our university. To that end, the criteria by which programs are to be evaluated have been created by members of our campus community. In February, more than 1,000 people participated in an online criteria survey, the results of which were evaluated by two campus committees.  The Academic Planning Council (APC) and the Resources, Space, and Budget Committee (RSB) began with criteria suggested by national program prioritization expert Robert Dickeson, then created NIU-specific criteria and assigned weights to each item.
