The Workgroup is to make recommendations to improve the academic program approval process of the Maryland Higher Education Commission. The aim is to make the process transparent, efficient, evidence–based, and timely, while allowing institutions the flexibility to respond to the needs of the students and State.
Recommendations will encompass options for the Maryland Higher Education Commission to develop: operational missions that differentiate each institution’s roles in meeting State goals; three–year institutional plans to facilitate efficient coordination of academic degree programs; mechanisms to ensure that objective data demonstrates that proposed programs support State workforce needs and the economic competitiveness of the State and that MHEC has sufficient data analytics staff to evaluate these objectives; and measurable criteria to determine the value of any proposed program.
