In recent years, colleges and universities across the country and the world have shown increasing interest in block plan and intensive course schedules. Such interest has only intensified in response to threats posed by the global pandemic. Although Colorado College had to cancel our in-person Block Plan Institute this summer, we are restructuring elements from our original program and will offer two webinars with colleagues from around the globe:
