Sustainable Curriculum

Provost Agouris initiated a sustainable curriculum review process for each of W&M’s component schools in December 2020. Led by each school’s dean in collaboration with faculty, administration, and other school-specific partners, this effort is designed to ensure each school’s curriculum reaches specific benchmarks:

  • Meets the needs of current and future students
  • Is pedagogically sound
  • Is adequately resourced and makes effective use of resources
  • Reflects a school vision/strategy that advances W&M’s mission, vision, and values
  • Provides a mechanism for identifying potential new opportunities and programs
  • Enables the academic enterprise to respond effectively with programs and resources in current and future fiscal environments

The intended outcomes include identifying the following:

  • A curriculum vision/strategy for the next 3-5 years
  • Teaching needs to best deliver the sustainable curriculum
  • Areas of strength and areas of concern
  • Opportunities for new programs with demonstrated potential demand
  • An action plan to address areas of strength, concern, and opportunity, and to align resources with demands, and to generate new resources
