The funds available for this program have now been exhausted. However, if you are working on a course proposal we would like to encourage you to contact Carrie Zelna, the Director of Assessment in the Division of Undergraduate Academic Programs, if you would like any help with outcome development or identifying ways to measure outcomes. For more information regarding General Education and the administrative processes, see the Council on Undergraduate Education website.
We thank everyone who inquired about the Diversity GEP Course Development Fund program and who is working on developing a course for the GEP list. These courses will greatly enrich the experience of the students. A university education cannot be complete without serious engagement with diversity.
