Many institutions have been operating in a financially unsustainable way for many years. Now that economic conditions are forcing institutions to reduce or restructure their program offerings, critical questions and challenges face campus leaders. Which programs are most important to the institution’s mission, overall financial health, and competitiveness? How do I ensure the institution is stronger as a result?

Join Bob Dickeson and Larry Goldstein for an in-depth examination of a proven method for prioritizing academic and administrative programs.


Given the leadership support required to implement a successful prioritization effort, we have specially designed this program for teams of institutional executives. We strongly encourage both the chief financial officer and chief academic officer of your institution to attend this program together. If your institution is early in the process of considering prioritization, we also encourage your institution’s president to attend as part of your team.

Successful implementation also requires significant support from the institutional research office, so we enourage representatives from IR to attend as well.


This program is highly interactive and discussion-based. While the concepts of prioritization have been successfully used in multiple campus settings, there is no one template for successful implementation. A variety of cultural and economic factors will influence your institution’s approach. As such, this program is highly focused on the application of these concepts to your specific campus context. Outcomes from the various group activities will be documented and shared out to each participant after the program so you can take back a range of ideas and solutions that might work for your campus.

This program is based in large part on Bob Dickeson’s book, Prioritizing Academic Programs and Services, which was recently revised and updated. Included in your registration fee is a complimentary copy of this resource-rich book, which can be helpful not only as a guide but to build buy-in for this effort.
