Curriculum Proposals

A proposal to include a course in the General Education Core comprises: (1) a proposal form (see below) indicating the General Education Outcomes met by the course, and (2) a course syllabus documenting the means by which these outcomes are achieved and assessed. (Syllabi for courses in the College of Arts and Sciences should include the College's minimum syllabus elements.) Proposals to include a course in the General Education Core must be approved by the appropriate department head and dean and submitted to the Office of Academic Affairs. The General Education Committee reviews proposals submitted by the colleges and schools of the University during September and October of each year.
