General Education Assessment

The process that led to the development and implementation of CORE 2.0 relied heavily on ongoing assessment and revision. An overview is provided in the annual reports for this project, which can be accessed at

Detailed assessment reports for each year are available upon request. The introduction of CORE 2.0 has been accompanied by a new management structure for general education. The CORE 2.O Committee (C2C) is charged with providing broad faculty leadership for the core curriculum as a whole. The detailed work associated with the individual core areas is the responsibility of associated faculty steering committee (whose chairs are members of C2C). In addition to reviewing and making recommendations on course proposals and conducting faculty development, faculty steering committees are also responsible for managing assessment of their respective core areas. The first assessment will be conducted in fall 2004.

Additional information for students and faculty is available at the CORE 2.0 website.
