Biographical / Historical

The Commission on Curricular Reform was established in 1972 to reform certain aspects of the academic program at Davidson, reforms which had their origin in the North Carolina Institute for Undergraduate Curricular Reform. During their one year of existence, the Commission secured a system of faculty evaluation and implemented a faculty development program. Changes were made in Davidson's Extended Studies program which reinforced the role of independent study at Davidson. They also inititiated the humanities program for freshmen, investigated black student life at Davidson, redesigned the Honors College and restructured the pre-medical program. Finally, the Commission started a program to place professors emeriti in the library as consultants and developed an international/service learning program.
