University System of Georgia Strategic Plan
Strategic Goal One:
Renew excellence in undergraduate education to meet students’ 21st century
Undergraduate education is the instructional heart of the University System. It should be a transforming experience for students. Each generation anew must re-examine and define the value of the liberal arts tradition to contemporary circumstances. It is critical at this moment to determine whether undergraduate students are learning what they need to lead full lives and to become productive citizens.
As a result of its strategic actions, the University System will re-examine its general education curriculum, renew its commitment to a liberal arts education for this century, and improve the quality of undergraduate teaching and learning.
The objectives of this goal include possible revision to the core, increasing graduation rates, ensuring high-quality academic advisement, increasing study abroad participation, and supporting and rewarding faculty members who make a meaningful contribution to undergraduate student learning and success.
