Family and Consumer Sciences
This report outlines the process, findings, and recommendations from that work related to the Family and Consumer Sciences program. As an organization, it is understood that the pace of change may be dependent upon the impact of that change on other aspects of the educational program. When conducting this work in an individual department, it is important and difficult to balance competing interests and constraints. The process model reflects this challenge as the “ripple effect” of balancing people, time and money. Practically, the committee utilized the action-priority matrix to evaluate each recommendation and established an implementation timeline with associated cost estimates.
