MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A new University of Montana panel will look at finding ways to strengthen programs that have low enrollment or the perception of low relevance.
Professor Andrew Ware says the 14-member task force will look for ways to grow the university's programs through its Academic Alignment and Innovation Project.
The Missoulian reports (http://bit.ly/1vyIDFI ) university president Royce Engstrom asked the panel to identify programs with low enrollment and find ways to make them more attractive to students. He also is seeking to identify programs that have high student demand and could benefit from growth.
The goal is to ensure the liberal arts remain central to the school's education and to better market its relevance.
