A warm welcome to our new and returning Augsburg community members.
The GenEd(it) Group is working to finalize a set of proposed revisions to our general education curriculum (the set of requirements all undergraduate students share) this fall. An overview of planned next steps are:
September: GenEd(it) Group creates draft version(s) of proposed revisions
October: Invite response to draft version(s) from faculty, staff and students
November: GenEd(it) Group finalizes proposed revisions
December: Shared governance begins
Since the start of this initiative in spring 2023, the GenEd(it) Group:
-Examined the rationale for general education revision
-Conducted a comparison of requirements across institutions
-Surveyed the Augsburg community about learning goals
-Convened a well-attended faculty workshop in May
We will be inviting feedback on the draft version(s) of proposed revisions to our general education curriculum next month. Specific details are forthcoming.
We look forward to hearing from you in the coming weeks.
