Long-Range Academic Master Plan (LAMP)

The Long Range Academic Master Plan (LAMP) task force has been established by the Provost, in consultation with the Academic Senate.

The LAMP charge is as follows:

LAMP will use information from the University Academic Master Plan, the Colleges' strategic planning process, unit three-year rolling plans, and regional economic and employment data, to examine and make recommendations about the prioritization of future degree programs, options, minors, and certificates, from across all of CSUSM's colleges.

LAMP will make recommendations regarding the timelines for implementing new programs. LAMP's recommendations should be independent of resource implications. Although BLP and UCC may recommend the adoption of proposals for programs not considered by LAMP, LAMP's recommendations must be taken into account by BLP and UCC in the evaluation of new proposals.

In considering program proposals and making its recommendations, LAMP should take into account, among other things, the following considerations:

  • CSUSM's mission, vision and values
  • The University Academic master Plan
  • Three year-rolling plans and College strategic plans
  • State and regional needs (including but not limited to economic trends)
  • Likely student demand
  • Collaborations among CSUSM's colleges
  • Potential collaborations with community partners and other campuses.
