Message from the Dean
This academic year, we launch our new General Education program with its exciting new course categories, including I-Series and Scholarship in Practice.
Across all categories, faculty have submitted nearly 1000 new and revised courses. Over 60 faculty on nine faculty boards have reviewed the courses. Collaborative teams have redesigned, rewritten, and recoded course and student record systems, across a massive amount of detail. Faculty and advisors have updated over 125 four-year academic major plans. The result? A refreshed, innovative, and strengthened academic program for our undergraduate students.
