This year a new faculty committee has been formed to review the current Amherst curriculum. The Curriculum Committee, formed as a result of the college’s recently completed strategic plan, will provide recommendations for action to the Committee on Educational Policy, a permanent faculty committee, at the end of the academic year.

“The major focus of the [curriculum] committee is to figure out what is the right education for Amherst College students right now in this decade and entering the next,” said Dean of the Faculty Catherine Epstein.
