Faculty and the General Education Program

CORE and the General Education Program

The CORE General Education program will continue for several years after the General Education program is implemented. Current students and many incoming transfer students will remain under the CORE requirements. Courses approved for the General Education program categories will be assigned CORE categories as needed and appropriate.

When faculty wish to propose a new course or an existing non-CORE course for the General Education program, the online submission form will ask what CORE category may also be appropriate. Faculty do not need to submit a separate CORE proposal.

There is no Interdisciplinary and Emerging Issues (IE) category in the new program. However, CORE IE courses may be submitted for the General Education program (in a single category, or for multiple category designation).
