Committee Releases Recommendations For ECU Programs

A committee tasked with assessing productivity, quality and centrality in the academic units across East Carolina University released its recommendations Wednesday.

Members of the Program Prioritization Committee examined nine colleges, which included 70 departments and schools, and the Brody School of Medicine beginning in May.

While the majority of the 277 programs examined would be maintained, the report targets 48 for reduction or elimination. Those include a variety of subject areas within the College of Education, the School of Music, Construction Management and Interior Design.

Several of those programs are already winding down operations, according to the report.

ECU Chancellor Steve Ballard accepted the university self-study report from the committee and deemed it ready for release.

"I'm proud of the systematic and comprehensive work done by the Program Prioritization Committee, which I believe to be among the very best campus prioritization assessments in the nation," he said. "All of this work to reduce expenditures and find more resources will be continuous, challenging, and essential to our future."

ECU took a 16.1 percent or $49 million cut in state funding for the 2011-2012 fiscal year following four consecutive years of state budget cuts. That has meant fewer sections of courses, larger classes and as many as 200 jobs have been eliminated on campus.
