Advancing the 60-year curriculum
How long should the relationship between a student and their university last?
According to Gary Matkin, Ph.D. — vice provost, Division of Career Pathways, and dean, Division of Continuing Education, UC Irvine — at least 60 years.
His novel concept, the 60-year curriculum (60YC), is gaining recognition across institutions as more people find value in the concept of lifelong learning. The 60YC calls for universities to remain relevant to students throughout their lives as they transition from college to the workforce, between careers, and from working to retirement. This includes a call to action: to provide greater service to students and alumni, as well as to the general public through regional and workplace development.
On Tuesday, October 8, join the UCOP Division of Academic Affairs and the Center for Studies in Higher Education (CSHE) at UC Berkeley for a compelling lunchtime investigation of the 60YC theory and what it may mean for UC’s future. Refreshments will be served.
