The Academic Program Prioritization Task Force, composed of faculty, students and academic administrators, examined all undergraduate and graduate programs as part of an effort designed to give WCU leaders the information they need in order to make decisions regarding the best allocation of limited resources and to ensure that the university remains focused on strong academic programs aligned to its mission.
Eight programs were assessed as “truly exceptional and high-performing” and designated for potential enhancement as additional resources become available. The report identified 13 programs – two undergraduate minors, four undergraduate majors and seven graduate-level programs – for phased discontinuation.
