Undergraduate Core Curriculum Redesign
Call for Task Force Members
USF’s Core Curriculum–the foundation of our undergraduate academic experience–was first adopted in 2002. In light of the Strategic Plan’s call for us to re-imagine Jesuit education, the Provost is initiating a process of review and redesign with the goal of launching a new Core Curriculum in fall 2025.
In particular, the redesign aims to:
- Articulate a signature Jesuit experience that will make a USF education distinctive;
- Equip all undergraduate students with the skills, knowledge and orientation to make meaningful change in their communities and the world.
- Foreground USF’s commitments to anti-racism, diversity, equity and inclusion, global engagement, experiential learning and environmental justice.
- Center the literatures, theologies, artistry, scholarship and contributions of the most marginalized in our community and world, in the spirit of the Jesuit apostolic preference for walking with the excluded.
- Prepare students for meaningful career paths and success beyond their undergraduate studies.
- Include intentional pathways for transfer students to ensure timely completion of the degree.
The Task Force will conduct a transparent, participatory process of community co-design involving three phases–discovery, discernment, and design.
Faculty, librarians, staff, and students are invited to self-nominate or to nominate others for the Task Force by using this form. Please submit your nominations by Friday, January 6, 2023. Please note that you should ensure the availability of anyone you elect to nominate.
