Program Prioritization Timeline Pushed Forward

In response to concerns from members of the campus community, NIU officials have agreed to push forward the deadline for completion of program analysis by Academic and Administrative task forces.

Rather than beginning their work in October and finishing in March, the new timeline calls for the Task Forces to do all their work during the Spring 2016 semester, finishing in April.

This eliminates working across two semesters, and provides more time for input of program data and training of task force members.

“We continue to respond to campus concerns with flexibility,” explained Lisa Freeman, executive vice president and Provost.

“In addition to pushing up the task force work, we will be pushing back deadlines related to standard program review and assessment work to give departments more time for program prioritization,” she added.
