Core Designation Requirements

What are the requirements for a course to receive a particular designation—diversity (D), critical inquiry (I), communication (C), responsible living (R) and then the capstone (Z)?

The course must
• meet the objectives for the relevant designation (D, I, C, R, or Z for capstone):
–D and I: see Appendix F of the General Education Taskforce Report
–C: see Appendix G of the General Education Taskforce Report
–R: see Appendix H of the General Education Taskforce Report
–Z: see Appendix M of the General Education Taskforce Report
• agree to provide learning experiences that meet the stated general education learning outcomes for the relevant designation (see the pilot rubric documents and General Education Taskforce Report);
• assess student learning using the common rubrics (from pilot rubric documents link above), and
• report the assessment data to the UCA Core Director and UCA Core Council.
