Checklist: General Planning for All Program Changes
Why Read This
Academic program changes carry risk and mandate difficult choices. Comprehensive planning puts your institution in the best position to make solid, long-term program change decisions that are in the best interests of the campus community and consistent with the institutional mission.
This checklist provides detailed guidance about planning considerations that apply to any type of program change. It covers:
- Policies, laws, and agreements
- Preparing for the process
- Other elements of education and preparation
This checklist is part of a series of checklists that accompanies United Educators' (UE’s) Guide to Manage Risks Associated With Program Change and can be used in conjunction with the other checklists in the series: program reduction or discontinuance, change of institutional control, and institutional closure.
