College Made Whole: Integrative Learning for a Divided World | Chris Gallagher

People in this story

Chris Gallagher, Vice Chancellor for Global Learning Opportunities; Professor of English

American higher education is being torn apart. Institutions, curricula, courses, and faculty roles are being “unbundled”—broken into constituent parts in the name of efficiency and cost savings. As a result, the college learning experience is fragmented and incoherent, leaving graduates less and less equipped to confront the dire social problems that cause those divisions in the first place.

In College Made Whole, Chris W. Gallagher lays bare the dangers of the dis-integration of the college experience and shows how we can put higher education back together again. The successful colleges and universities of the future, Gallagher argues, will be integrated: coherently and cohesively designed to help students achieve a lifelong learning experience that is more than the sum of its parts.
