How Do You Distinguish Yourself Through Your Curriculum?

Colleges are competing for students, and to do so, many are seeking to change with the times — and revamp their curricular offerings. But revising the curriculum is rarely a quick and easy endeavor. How can colleges develop new programs that fit their missions while navigating the myriad challenges that go along with it, including securing all-important support from faculty members?

In a coming virtual forum, “How Do You Distinguish Yourself Through Your Curriculum?,” a panel of experts joins The Chronicle to discuss best practices for revising the curriculum, including such questions as:

  • How can colleges encourage communication, compromise, and patience throughout the process?
  • What can colleges do to ensure that additions to the curriculum meet the overall mission?
  • What lessons can be learned from the success of other institutions?

Host: Liz McMillen, executive editor of Chronicle Intelligence,
