Session Abstract

History departments undertake curricular work for a variety of reasons: to meet the strengths of their faculty, to update the curriculum based on changes in the discipline, because of budgetary concerns, to prepare students for careers. But what about curricular innovation designed to improve or transform enrollment? What are the opportunities, dangers, and limitations of this kind of curricular change? In this panel, chairs and undergraduate advisors from four departments across the country talk about efforts in their departments and share ideas and reflections about this kind of curricular revision.
