By Northern Star staff

The members of the academic and administrative task forces were announced Tuesday on the program prioritization website.

Forty-three faculty, instructors, supportive professional staff and operating staff will serve on the task forces, determining mergers, cuts and increases in funding for academic and administrative programs. The members will begin peer review training in the fall and rank programs in the spring.

“We’re very pleased with the quality of individuals who were nominated and those chosen to serve,” said Lisa Freeman, executive vice president and provost, according to the program prioritization website. “These are all members of our university community who have strong histories of service, a commitment to excellence and the respect of their peers.”
