In the spirit of continuous program improvement, and in support of evolving university priorities, there are two notable revisions to the General Education program under review.
Firstly: to create new student learning outcomes in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Each degree program must describe how their curriculum meets these outcomes, either through an “across the curriculum approach” or with the use of BoK contemporary topics courses. To support achievement of these learning outcomes, this revision plans to include the creation of two new Breadth of Knowledge contemporary topics areas. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and Society, Culture, and Ethics (SCE). These would replace Diversity and Culture (DC), and Social, and Ethical Issues (SE).
Secondly: to create new student learning outcomes in Career Education. To support achievement of these learning outcomes, academic programs will address them at the three General Education touchpoints: First Year Experience, Mid-Collegiate Experience, and Senior Capstone. A Career Education course attribute will be added to our course attributes so track where career education content is offered throughout the curriculum.
This is the primary document describing the General Education Core, and incorporating proposed revisions.
