Givens, Paul R.
The campus unrest in recent years past has facilitated a change of major importance within the higher education community. Educators have been forced to reevaluate college curricula in order to make it more relevant to students. This paper describes programs at 30 colleges and universities in which students are allowed to design their own programs of study. The range of programs described is wide, and reflects the degree of innovation that characterizes the move toward student-initiated academic planning. (HS)
