The University Studies Advisory Committee is implementing a new general education curriculum, approved by the Faculty Senate, the purpose of which is to provide students with both breadth of knowledge and the abilities to understand the world through a multiplicity of approaches and perspectives. Courses are eligible for potential inclusion in a US component if the student learning outcomes (SLOs) for the component are met. In its review of proposals, the USAC considers how accurately and effectively course-specific SLOs align with component SLOs. The USAC’s review of proposals is also mindful of SACS requirements, which state that “credit hours are to be drawn from and include at least one course from each of the following: humanities/fine arts; social/behavioral sciences; and natural science/mathematics” (2.7.3).
