Themester 2020

A call for potential 2020 themes will be announced shortly. College of Arts and Sciences faculty members are encouraged to work together across departments to create multidisciplinary proposals. 

The College Undergraduate Education committee will choose from the plans submitted. Several considerations go into deciding on the theme. Does the College curriculum adequately address the theme? Are there multiple ways of looking at the theme? Will the theme allow a discussion across disciplines? Will the theme engage students? Does the theme address important issues?
