University of Montana's program "prioritization" goes off the rails

December 7, 2017View for printing

The process, conducted on an expedited timeline, prompted members of the administration and the campus task force in charge of prioritization to acknowledge its limitations at the outset.

Other critics are hinting at a legal challenge that, if successful, would invalidate the entire eight-month process.
