Curriculum Development and Assessment

UNF's General Education Council oversees the content and standards of the curriculum. This body includes elected faculty representatives from the fields central to the curriculum; representatives of each of the five academic colleges, appointed by their deans; and ex-officio members representing the Academic Center for Excellence; Admissions; Assessment; Student Government; and Undergraduate Studies. The Council meets regularly during the academic year to consider proposed changes to the curriculum, assessment of student learning, and other issues.
The Council reviews new additions to the curriculum, and removal of courses, using these criteria. To propose an addition to the General Education Curriculum, faculty should first review the criteria and contact Dr. Susan Perez, Interim Associate Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences to discuss the course. Proposals for new courses should be made using the template available.
Each year, faculty assess student performance in General Education courses. This allows faculty, the General Education Council, and the University, to understand the degree to which our students are mastering the competencies central to the curriculum. A template for General Education assessment reporting and a model for completing the report can be found on the General Education Faculty Resources Canvas Group Site. Reports also detail the steps that faculty and programs are taking to improve student learning, whether through changes at the course level or through integration with other University resources. Course level results are aggregated each year in the General Education Assessment Report.
