Ongoing research, much completed

Presented to SP Allied Health Committee

Current faculty (2 FT) and the addition of two adjuncts are needed for the start. As specialized courses are added, other adjucts (at possibly a higher pay rate) will be needed.

Office supplies are estimated at $500 per year

The current classroom space allocated for IT is sufficient at this time

Since many of the required courses are shared between the IT major and the HCI major, we can handle the additional load in the near term

The department currently has 15 laptops to support students who are not issued laptops. This should handle the additional load. These of course would need to be kept current on the same scale as other systems.

Our current classroom can accommodate 25 students.

Most materials are readily available online and library costs should be minimal.

B. Determine Regulatory Demands

  • Accreditation
  • State
  • AQIP
  • USM Governance

Identification of Healthcare faculty (adjunct)

No remodeling or additional labs are needed at this time

Since most of the courses are either part of the current USM GE or the IT major, only three courses will need development for the initial launch

A key part of this program development should be to go online. In this vein, all courses needed will require development for the online system.
