University of Montana continues efforts to prioritize programs

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - The University of Montana continues its process of prioritizing programs on campus.

The first phase of the work, which reviewed programs that are supported from UM's general fund -- including biology, mathematics and other undergraduate programs.

The Task Force is now in Phase two, categorizing units that don't receive general fund dollars, meaning that assistance does not come from tuition or state money. These would be programs like physical therapy clinic, grizzly bear recovery and UM Online.

Although the group is still in the second phase of work, there's already been talk about what the third phase of the project could look like.

"What President [Seth] Bodnar has envisioned -- from my understanding -- is the University Planning Committee re-envisioned to focus specifically on integrating our different strategic initiatives such as the Strategic Planning Coordinating Council, APASP and other curriculum review proposals," APASP Task Force member Chase Greenfield said. "From my understanding, it would be an integrating of those kind of services to set our priorities for the university.   

The task force hopes to have all units in Phase two categorized after next week's meeting which is set for Monday, Feb. 12 at 1 p.m. in the University Center on the UM campus.
