Who We Are

The idea of creating a national consortium of individualized major programs developed from discussions among the individuals listed below.  However, the group has no fixed structure.  Other leaders of IMPs are welcome to join our montly conference calls.  Please send inquiries to Daniel Gordon dgordon@history.umass.edu.

Currently, our main focus is on developing an annual conference for directors, advisors, and faculty in IMPs.  We also envision developing a scholarly literature on IMPs.
