As liberal arts colleges and universities consider their missions and contemplate the future, significant challenges lie ahead—financial sustainability, increased competition and public perception of value to name a few. Yet many opportunities lie waiting, too—new technologies and digital tools enable faculty and students to traverse many boundaries, increasing access and furthering support of scholarship and learning. Project DAVID uses a set of themes—distinction, analytics, value, innovation, and digital opportunities—to guide leadership through the various factors, forces, and challenges they face and consider how they might reinvent themselves. In this seminar Ann Hill Duin, professor at the University of Minnesota, founder of Project DAVID and a NITLE Fellow along with contributors to the Project DAVID eBook -- Elizabeth Brennan, Associate Professor and Director of Special Education Programs, California Lutheran University; Ty Buckman, Professor of English and Associate Provost for Undergraduate Affairs & Curriculum, Wittenberg University; Autumm Caines, Academic Technology Specialist, Capital University; and, Wen-Li Feng, Curriculum Technology Specialist, Capital University -- outlines how they are using these themes to examine current challenges and opportunities and to design their futures.
