Checklist: Program Reduction or Discontinuance
Why Read This
Program reductions or discontinuances are significant events on campus. While their impact may be less far reaching than a change of control or institutional closure, they still implicate a wide variety of issues. This checklist provides detailed guidance on reducing or discontinuing specific programs. Topics include:
- Planning the reduction or discontinuance process
- Prioritizing students
- Addressing faculty and other employment issues
- Other risk management and planning considerations
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 checklist on general planning for all program changes.
