Course Approval Process Information for Faculty

Future changes to KU's General Education program must follow an approval process that takes into account all constituencies. Major structural changes to the General Education Program (such as adding another category, removing a sub-category, adding a new sub-category, adding/removing a required course(s), etc.) would constitute a significant change in the General Education program. Because the current structure was approved by APSCUF-KU Representative Council, University Senate, and the University Curriculum Committee, any major changes to the structure should receive the approval of all three bodies.

*Faculty teaching a First Year Seminar or a Course in Categories A-D are required to submit assessment material for the required SLOs when requested by the General Education Assessment Committee. Failure to submit assessment material may result in a course being pulled out of the General Education Program.*
