Preliminary results of efforts to review and categorize 59 degree and 66 non-degree UCCS programs will be shared with faculty and staff during the April Chancellor’s All-Campus Forum.

The forum is scheduled for 11 a.m. Monday in Berger Hall. The venue was selected to allow more interested faculty and staff to attend and learn details of the data-driven process required by the CU Board of Regents. Faculty and staff will have the opportunity to see results prior to the submission of a report to the regents scheduled for April 29.

As part of the process, all degree and non-degree programs were placed into one of five categories: exemplary, prominent, accomplished, strategic or needing further study. The effort is part of a Regents-directed process called Program Prioritization and includes all CU campuses.

At the forum, Chancellor Pam Shockley-Zalabak will review the category criteria, evaluation processes, and anticipated steps following submission to the regents. She also will answer questions from the audience.

At UCCS, more than 100 faculty and staff members took part in the evaluation of programs. The evaluators worked independently in February and met as groups in March to share information before final score submissions to the Office of Institutional Research and review by campus administrative leaders.
