Program Prioritization Data System
Program Author Training

Prioritization Plus is the web-based software system that NIU is implementing to facilitate the collection and review of program information as part of the program prioritization process. These workshops are for academic and administrative program administrators (department chairs, directors, etc.) responsible for drafting narrative responses and providing supplemental data as part of the Program Prioritization process. Advance registration is required.

For the hands-on workshops (90 minutes in length), individuals will have opportunity to practice entering program narrative information in Prioritization Plus, as well as learn the basics of how to login and access institutionally provided data and enter a program write up and other supplemental data. 

For the online workshops (60 minutes in length), individuals will have an opportunity to view all the steps for accessing and entering program information in Prioritization Plus as well as ask questions about the process for entering program information.
