CHELIP/Gray Logo
This course is designed for higher-education leaders involved in decisions to start, stop, sustain, or grow academic programs. It is appropriate for senior administrators, academic leaders, faculty, researchers, consultants, assessment officers, and graduate students in higher education. It should also be useful for state-level leaders who oversee higher education.

Course objective: Give higher-education leaders, decision-makers, and analysts an understanding of the data, systems, processes, and participants needed to make well-informed and broadly-supported program decisions consistent with an institution’s mission, academic standards, markets, and program economics.

Participants will learn the concepts, information, and tasks needed to make data-informed program decisions. They will learn to complete an academic portfolio evaluation, including finding, analyzing, and synthesizing relevant data and evaluation criteria. They will grasp the keys to effective decision-making processes for current and new programs. Specifically, participants will learn the mechanics of Integrated Program Analysis, program evaluation software, program portfolio workshops, and the overall art and science of academic entrepreneurship.

Upon completing the ten modules, participants will receive a certificate in Academic Program Evaluation and Management (APEM). This certificate is co-sponsored by Gray Associates and The Center for Higher Education Leadership and Innovative Practice (CHELIP) at Bay Path University. The all-inclusive, non-refundable certificate fee is $775, which is due upon registration.
