Nebraska's Coordinating Commission for Postsecondary Education

Academic programs dominate agenda at Chadron

The Coordinating Commission will meet this Thursday, June 25, at Chadron State College. The Commission typically meets seven or eight times a year and, because of its statewide role in higher education, attempts to meet on college campuses throughout Nebraska. Proposals for new academic programs and organizational units dominate the agenda at Chadron State.

The CCPE Commissioners will consider five proposals for new instructional programs, one proposal for a new degree offering, and three proposals for new organizational units. The Commission also will meet for a work session the evening of June 24. The work session, also at Chadron State, will focus on potential revisions to the Comprehensive Statewide Plan for Postsecondary Education. The Commission is required by state constitution to develop and update as necessary the Comprehensive Plan.
