Program Development

Program development will consider student needs, regional job market realities, and the importance of “soft skills” and digital literacy in preparing students.

All modes of instruction will be expanded, but more attention will be given to creating face-to-face programs and courses at the main campus in Victoria.

Development of new programs will be undertaken strategically and aligned with university goals.

New programs will:

  • Align with student needs and strategic recruiting
  • Be based upon community and regional needs
  • Offer students reasonable career options
  • Provide students with the “soft skills” (written and oral communication, critical thinking, etc.) needed in the future globalized economy
  • Grow the face-to-face operation in Victoria
  • Receive adequate resources for start-up, development, and growth
  • Provide flexibility that allows students to change majors or switch tracks to encourage retention and timely completion of a degree
  • Consider the professional opinion and expertise of existing UHV faculty members.
