Imagining the Duke Curriculum Committee

Committee Charge:

The Dean of Arts & Sciences and the Chair of the Arts & Sciences Council of Trinity College charges the Imagining the Duke Curriculum Committee to examine the state of the curriculum and make revisions. The committee’s revisions should respond to three key questions: In its present educational context, can the logic of the curriculum be clarified and simplified? Does the curriculum have a capacity to draw out and challenge students’ curiosity and creativity? Does the curriculum have a capacity to reap the full benefits of the disciplinary and interdisciplinary work of a research university?
