In May 2017, Chancellor Wrigley announced the launch of the College 2025 initiative, which included the development of a five- to 10-year academic roadmap for the USG and its institutions. In parallel with College 2025 work, the system established a comprehensive strategy around student success and completion called Momentum Year.
Together, these undertakings have demonstrated the need to update the structure and content of USG’s general education curriculum. Consequently, USG initiated a review convening a group of faculty, academic administrators and industry leaders and utilizing more than 500 submitted comments to create a draft set of design principles to shape the structure and scope of the new curriculum.
As part of the design process, USG sought input from all across the system and state — from faculty, staff, administrators, students and concerned members of the public. The several hundred received responses allowed the wording of the draft design principles to be refined in both tone and substance. The final revised design principles were approved by the Board of Regents at the September Board Meeting.
The next stage of the work is to create a new structure for the general education curriculum that reflects the new set of design principles. To undertake this work we are convening a new group of faculty, academic administrators, academic technologists and industry leaders.
Once again, we would appreciate your thoughts about the how the design principles can be brought to life via answers to some or all of the questions in the form below.
