GREAT FALLS — The University of Providence in Great Falls is bringing back academic programs that had been canceled, as well as bringing a new program into their curriculum.
According to a press release Friday, The University of Providence Board of Trustees voted to reinstate several academic programs that had been eliminated from their offerings last February due to program prioritization and reallocation of resources.
The university programs are Accounting (including the graduate program), Elementary Education, and Health and Physical Education.
After the initial cancellation of these programs the university received multiple responses from student alumni and Great Falls community members, which prompted the Board of Trustees to re-evaluate the needs of students and what programs they would be able to offer.
“The revitalization of these programs is just another expression of UP’s commitment to respond to the needs of the local community and students, following in the tradition of the Sisters of Providence,” says Father Oliver Doyle, Interim President.
Along with the reinstatement of these programs the university will also be offering an online program in Pharmacy Tech that will be offered starting January 2020.
In the press release they also stated the university will continue to evaluate and re-evaluate current programs, and along with building new innovative programs to capitalize on UP’s Catholic heritage, needs of the local community, demands of the digital learning environment, and relationship with Providence St. Joseph Health.
