A brief review of the purpose and the viability process of was discussed. Espinosa-Pieb clarified that the IPBT will be identifying programs and making recommendations for restructuring, suspension/reduction, and discontinuance. The definitions of each are described on the revised IPBT calendar that was distributed. Anderson requested a statement from the Co-Chair Lee-Wheat who also reiterated the message that based on a review of the data; program discontinuance is most definitely a recommendation that the IPBT may be making. Espinosa-Pieb also stated that this process is meant to be as transparent as possible. And she feels that the process, which has been evolving, is allowing for joint participation of all instructional related groups. She also remarked that if any party decided to opt out of the process that the remaining participants or the administration alone will proceed to make these decisions. She strongly encouraged anyone on the committee who feels that the work ahead is not for them to please step away NOW.
