Task Force Reports

The Program Prioritization process at NIU is designed to help us best align our resources with our mission so that we may become a stronger, more innovative and sustainable university. The process has been thorough, inclusive, data-informed and transparent. The Academic and Administrative Task Forces have now completed their work and their Executive Summaries and Reports are posted on this webpage. These reports will guide the next phase of the Program Prioritization process. In this phase, vice presidents and other divisional leaders, including deans, will review the recommendations within these reports, review feedback from the university community, consult with program leaders, and develop Action Plans for further review. These plans are to be completed by July 15, 2016. Following feedback from the university community and action planning, the President will be releasing a comprehensive progress report in fall 2016.  At that time, additional materials will be made public.
