2011-2014 Planning Report: Institutional Academic, Research and Student Service Plans
Nevada System of Higher Education
Since 1967, the Nevada State Legislature has mandated that public higher education institutions compile a comprehensive report on program plans. Therefore, this report is prepared in accordance with state law requiring the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) to prepare a biennial report for submission to the Nevada State Legislature that outlines a plan for new programs and expansions of existing programs of instruction, public service and research. This report summarizes the institutions' academic and research plans, also in accordance with Board policy ("Title 4, Chapter 14, Section 3"). However, these plans must be viewed in the context of an institution's overall budget and fiscal capacity. In some cases, the plans may include academic programs that are being discussed or considered for the future, but that may not be realistic given the current fiscal constraints facing the NSHE. However, they are included in the report as an indication of what may come if funds should become available either through grants or public support. Many of the anticipated programs are projected to be funded with federal grants, making some programs more likely than others to begin in this time of limited state resources. To that end, these lists may be viewed as "wish lists" based on resource availability. Because this report is updated and published every two years, it is often the case that institutions may have programs on the list from several years back and continue to roll them forward in the hope that eventually resources will be available to develop such programs. The plans are intended to notify various constituencies, including the Board of Regents and the Legislature, of what institutions are hoping to develop and believe is needed for them to meet their mission and the needs of the state, but they may not be construed as definitive in terms of the date of implementation.
