Frequently Asked Questions
What is meant by "internal (secondary) stakeholders"? Can you give examples?
Any program (or groups) within PBSC who benefits from your courses or teaching faculty could be considered internal stakeholders. Do you share your faculty with any other program or offer any of your courses to students in other programs? If so, those programs are internal stakeholders benefiting from your faculty or courses.
- An example of an internal stakeholder might be another PBSC’s educational program that relies on one or more of the courses from your program to meet their program requirements. With that type of relationship, changes to your program’s course offerings could affect that other program, which makes them an internal stakeholder. While the students in your program are (primary) stakeholders of your course; the students from the other program are your internal (secondary) stakeholders.
- Another example of internal (secondary) stakeholders could be an PBSC educational program that relies on another program to share faculty members who teach across both programs. The program that receives help from the first program is an internal (secondary) stakeholder. So therefore, any changes made to the faculty could affect both programs, including the internal (secondary) stakeholder.
- Another example of internal (secondary) stakeholder could be a PBSC non-academic unit that has a symbiotic relationship with your program and is impacted by your educational program activities.
