Academic and Administrative
Program Prioritization
Introduction
Steve Kaplan
Charging Forward by Program Prioritization
“Because the most likely source of resources is the
reallocation of existing resources, and because
much of the institution’s very being is at stake, the
process for accomplishing prioritization must be
academically responsible and honorable. This is
no time for campus politics as usual.”
– Prioritizing Academic Programs and Services
by Robert C. Dickeson
Why Program Prioritization?
• Need to strengthen core academic programs
and prioritize new areas for investment
• Assure that we are strategic in moving forward
• Address challenges from demographic trends,
economic conditions and alternative delivery
models
What is Program Prioritization?
• Process for strategic reallocation of resources
• Comprehensive review of all academic and
administrative programs
• Evidence-based decision-making process
• Based on Prioritizing Academic Programs and
Services by Robert C. Dickeson
What do we expect to gain?
• A roadmap for investment and reallocation
• Alignment of decisions with our strategic vision
to enhance the value of a UNH education
• A stronger culture of assessment and evidence-
based decision-making

adequately contributing to our success so that we
can make additional investments in programs that
are performing exceptionally well.”
