In 2016, Dean Kevin Guskiewicz appointed a small Curriculum Revision Working Group, chaired by Andrew J. Perrin, Professor of Sociology and Director of the Carolina Seminars Program, to begin work on revising the General Education curriculum. After much input, study, and discussion, in December 2016 the Working Group developed a model for the goals of the new General Education Curriculum.

In the spring semester of 2017, eight Task Forces worked intensively on key aspects of the curriculum:

  • Core Knowledge and Practical Skills
  • Discipline Areas
  • Diverse Perspectives and Global Understanding
  • Experiential Education
  • Evidence, Analysis, Interpretation, and Critique
  • Creativity, Ethics, and Judgment
  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Advising, Assessment, and Amendment

Our goal is to plan the development of a challenging, contemporary, and visionary curriculum that represents the best of Carolina. We hope to have it adopted, and the necessary resources in place and available for the class of 2025 when they arrive in 2021.

The Coordinating Committee is chaired by Andrew J. Perrin, Professor of Sociology and Director of the Carolina Seminars Program. Other members are:

  • Fouad Abd-el-Khalick, Dean of the School of Education
  • Daniel Anderson, Professor of English and Comparative Literature
  • Jaye Cable, Professor of Marine Sciences and Chair, Curriculum for the Environment and Ecology
  • Claude Clegg, Lyle V. Jones Distinguished Professor of African, African American, and Diaspora Studies and of History
  • Duane Deardorff, Director of Undergraduate Laboratories, Department of Physics and Astronomy
