University of Colorado Board of Regents work on prioritizing academic programs

BOULDER, Colo. - The University of Colorado Board of Regents is scheduled to meet this week to discuss how to prioritize academic programs.

The Daily Camera reports the regents will convene for their summer retreat Thursday and Friday at CU President Bruce Benson's mountain ranch near Kremmling.

Robert Dickeson, former president of the University of Northern Colorado and former senior vice president of Lumina Foundation for Education, will join the group. He wrote the book "Prioritizing Academic Programs and Services," which is based on his consulting experiences at colleges and corporations.

The discussion comes as the Boulder campus plans for two new colleges -- one focused on media, communication and information to replace the shuttered traditional journalism school; plus a second college that gives environmental and sustainability education room to grow.
