Curriculum Development

Davenport Curriculum Philosophy

The Davenport University curriculum is profession-focused, dynamic and outcomes-based; it anticipates market demand, is grounded in general education, and is enhanced by the Excellence System.

This philosophy aligns with our mission and the 2015 vision. All new programs and program revisions will follow these principles. The University Curriculum Committee will assess all curriculum recommendations in regard to the curriculum principles.  Further details of the framework are still in development by a faculty committee.
