Dean & Provost is pleased to recommend an upcoming Society for College and University Planning (SCUP) webcast entitled Prioritizing Administrative Programs and Activities on Wednesday, May 23.

How does your institution make critical decisions regarding program enhancement or program discontinuation? Institutions that thrive will have a sound conceptual framework and process that sets their administrative priorities. This online, interactive program will focus entirely on ways and tools to help you think about, and effectively manage, the prioritization of administrative programs. This includes all non-classroom and non-lab activities.

Presenters Robert Dickeson and Larry Goldstein have worked with hundreds of campuses to help administrative and academic leaders ensure their resources are used as effectively as possible to further institutional success.

Discover the key elements of priority-setting, including process, mission clarification, and leadership. Explore the range of criteria that can apply to administrative programs and activities. Think through your own institution’s readiness for prioritization, based on real-life experiences of hundreds of campuses.

This time- and cost-effective online program is designed to bring key and guiding principles of administrative prioritization to the leadership teams responsible for these decisions: presidents/CEOs, provosts, chief financial officers, chief planning officers, institutional researchers and individuals who want to better understand the prioritization decision-making process.
