Program prioritization is a reflective process used in higher education to inform the understanding of academic programs and the resources allocated to them. Many institutions are using this process to manage and allocate resources so that they can successfully meet the needs of their campus community. This webinar will examine the history and strategies behind this reflective process. Additionally, we will hear the perspectives of two member institutions, the University of New Haven and the Moody Bible Institute, who have implemented this process on their campus.
