About the Conference

AASCU’s Provost Symposium on best practices in academic program evaluation and management will be a highly interactive opportunity to work with your peers and learn best practices, including how to evaluate markets, margins, academics, and mission to identify high-potential programs. We will then simulate data-informed approaches to the ongoing management of your academic program portfolio. Each session will open with an expert speaker, followed by guided workshops that teach you how to use the best available data and analysis to evaluate and manage academic programs.
