 Program Prioritization

Program Prioritization

In order to utilize our resources to their fullest potential UMD is conducting a comprehensive Program Prioritization initiative to review the entire span of programs, courses, and services that we deliver in relation to how they each align with our mission and how they position UMD for growth. The goal of the Program Prioritization initiative is to manage and allocate our financial resources in ways that will best meet the needs of our students and our community.

Chancellor Black is leading UMD through this Program Prioritization initiative with the help of the Vice Chancellors, Deans, and Directors, but everyone on campus has been involved at the program level. Criteria and weights for the criteria were developed corroboratively in alignment with UMD's strategic plan, mission, and vision, with an additional focus on financial sustainability.

The process and time line are outlined in more detail below:
