In 2017, Dornsife College at the University of Southern California invited Andrew to develop BOOKPACKERS as a cross-humanities concept for undergraduate education. In 2018, he was appointed an adjunct 'Professor of the Practice' in the USC Department of English.
BOOKPACKERS now exists on the USC Schedule of Classes in two forms - a 15-week ‘on campus’ class, and a 28-day ‘on the road’ experience. The latter, a 'Maymester' class held in the month after commencement, currently takes place in New Orleans (see here).
Meanwhile, Andrew is working with USC Dornsife to develop a series of experiential and immersive classes which will take students out into Los Angeles, to explore their home city through great L.A. novels.
All BOOKPACKERS classes at USC are accredited for General Education.
