UMOnline Director Faculty Senate, Dec 12, 3pm-5pm, GBB 123 OPMs Online Program Management providers (OPMs) are companies that offer services related to the development and administration of online programs. Services include cutting edge digital education market research, marketing, and recruitment, enrollment management, student retention support, support for online course design, and technical infrastructure.

UM will retain authority over faculty hiring decisions in line with BOR policy (702.1). Academic processes for hiring will remain the same. Students will continue to be enrolled and registered as UM students.
