Faculty groups have been working since May 2015 to craft a new
intellectual core that we feel meets the goals of general education in
the twenty-first century. Our goal is to implement a new core program for all undergraduate students, including transfer students, who arrive on campus in Fall 2018 and beyond. Students who arrive prior to that date will be subject to current requirements. This spring, we look forward to continuing discussions with the campus community and creating opportunities for faculty and staff to shape the student learning outcomes, using the framework for the new AU Core that was approved by the Faculty Senate as a launching point for this important work.
General Education Implementation Task Force Co-Chairs: Cynthia Bair Van Dam, Hurst Senior Professorial Lecturer, College Writing Program Jessica L. Waters, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies
AU CORE FRAMEWORK
The Faculty Senate unanimously voted on February 1, 2017 to approve the AU Core Curriculum. The proposal document and an executive summary are available for review.
The AU Core will be implemented for all undergraduate students, including transfer students, who arrive on campus in Fall 2018 and beyond.
