Now with summer commencing and most academic terms reaching or having reached closure, it’s time to initiate those summer projects. I hope part of your summer will be spent reflecting on curricular change, one of the pressing topics of our time.

summit2019 headerAnnouncing the 2019 Summit!
21st Century Music School Design


Carolina/College Music Society Summit 2.0 is a workshop and experiential game-based challenge on the future of music in higher education. It builds on the unprecedented success of a sold-out 2016 event, during which interdisciplinary teams designed innovative new undergraduate degrees.

This time, our focus is on VALUES and CHOICES, considering a different and immediately relevant question: How can music programs better emphasize 21st century priorities within existing courses and curricular structures? Multiple teams will collaborate to reimagine traditional offerings, and then pitch proposals during a friendly competition.
