QUESTION SYNOPSIS:

More than one new Master’s Program has been developed lately and others are in the works. Are there any concerns that these are not in STEM fields and thus might have a negative impact on the metrics?

 

Answer from Earle Traynham, Provost & Vice President, Academic Affairs: 

"Yes, there is some concern, as we prefer not to take actions that may lower our performance on any of the metrics. However, a major part of our mission, as a comprehensive regional university, is to meet the needs of the northeast Florida region. If new Masters Programs address these needs, we should develop and offer them.
Some of the programs we are adding, e.g., Master of Social Work, are in areas of strategic emphasis and will improve our performance on the STEM metric."
