Program and College Structure Changes

Plans for restructuring of IUP's academic colleges and programs are not yet finalized, so what you see here is a work in progress.

Decisions about changes to academic programs are being made with four factors in mind:

  • Student demand

  • Employer demand

  • Demonstrated IUP strength in this area

  • Potential for financial sustainability

Based on those factors, some programs and academic departments may be

  • Renamed

  • Merged

  • Placed into moratorium

  • Closed

  • Moved to a different college

We understand that some of these decisions will result in disappointment and frustration. We don't make them lightly. The goal throughout is ensuring that IUP can continue to provide students with an affordable degree in the areas they seek and that employers are looking for.
