The following is the revised set of principles that we propose to be voted on by faculty in April.
Principle 1: Clear Purpose, that is well understood by all members of the
university community and that is consistent with the MU mission and the specific learning
needs of MU students.
Principle 2: Intentional Alignment of the objectives, curricular structure, and assessment with the purpose of Gen Ed, the mission of this University, and the learning needs of our students.
Principle 3: Coherence and connections between Gen Ed and majors.
Principle 4 (revised): Intellectual Richness, setting appropriately high expectations for students' engagement that develop as students progress through their academic programs.
Principle 5: Academic Community Reaching beyond the Classroom, fostering interactions between and among students, faculty, and the larger University community.
Principle 6 (new): Simplicity and flexibility, promoting ease of understanding and greater choice in meeting the Gen Ed requirements.
