About This Issue: Innovation and Disruption

Categories AboutPosted on

Drury University is no stranger to innovation and disruption in education. In her near 150 years, the University has continuously been at the forefront of purposeful change and effective pivots in the face of challenges. That is especially true in today’s volatile, ever-evolving educational climate, as we unveil and launch our new, highly innovative academic curriculum, Your Drury Fusion. The new program is the result of nearly two years of work by more than 100 Drury faculty members, and will challenge students to become flexible and creative problem-solvers in a highly supportive, yet intellectually rigorous environment. In this issue of Drury Magazine, we take a look at the many moving parts of the new curriculum, and what it takes to be innovative and disruptive in education, society and technology in a rapidly changing world. Each story embodies the mission and spirit of Drury University, and our critical mission to affect change in the face of a changing world.
