Cultural change at Texas A&M: From the engineering science core to the Foundation Coalition Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper describes a curriculum innovation process at Texas A&M - College Station (TAMU) with emphasis on the Foundation Coalition project. Lessons learned from the Engineering Science Core project - a predecessor to the Foundation Coalition (FC) at Texas A&M funded under the NSF Undergraduate Curriculum Program - will be presented. The paper looks at faculty, administrator and student `buy-in' to the program and at curriculum development strategies that have been implemented on the TAMU campus. The processes developed for successful institutionalization of the Foundation Coalition programs will be presented.
