Session Abstract

Recently, we have all likely heard the growing concern about the state of the field, including declining numbers of undergraduate history majors. We also often face pressure from various levels of administration to increase our enrollment and retention of majors. How do you accomplish adding and developing majors in addition to our other research, teaching, and service obligations? This roundtable will address multiple approaches to build a strong undergraduate program from varying types of institutions to overcome the hurdle of recruiting and retaining majors.
