Residential Curriculum Resources

Residential Curriculum Content

These resources are a part of our ongoing efforts to share research and insights into developing a residential curriculum. While these materials may help in providing a broad understanding what a curriculum entails, the ACPA Residential Curriculum Institute goes through step-by-step detail into how to enact these principles in your work. Roompact is a proud sponsor of the Residential Curriculum Institute. Our staff member, Paul Gordon Brown, also offers workshops and other consultative services related to a residential curriculum.
