CORE Faculty FAQ

How can I teach a Core curriculum course?

For information on Core Course Proposals or Revisions, as well as links to all appropriate forms, please visit the Core Course Proposals and Revisions FAQ.

What are the Social Justice and Diversity guidelines?

Social Justice and Diversity (henceforth SJD) courses must meet all three of the following student learning outcomes:

  1. Recognize multiple and intersecting dimensions of identity and inequity through the study of critical scholarship on the historical, cultural, political, and/or social experiences of marginalized communities.
  2. Identify and explain the causes and impact of privilege, power, and oppression and cultivate tools for overcoming conflict and promoting equality.
  3. Recognize and critique local, national, or global conditions that enable, perpetuate and/or challenge social injustice and inequity.

A designator for courses of 3 credit hours or more, SJD courses may also fulfill other core curriculum requirements, such as FYS and ICR.

Completing one SJD course will become a graduation requirement for the next cohort of incoming students after a sufficient number of courses are available to meet student need.

How do I propose a Social Justice and Diversity course?

To propose a new Social Justice and Diversity (SJD) course or to seek SJD designation for an existing Core course, please complete a SJD proposal form and the Core Course Proposal Form or Core Course Revision Form. The course proposal form is also available on the Core curriculum Moodle site. Please note: The Advisory Committee has decided to limit the designation to traditional semester-length face-to-face courses for the present.
