Welcome to the Core Implementation website!
Here you will find all approved courses for the new Core and background information on the implementation process.
Advising for Fall 2013 Classes:
The Core Information Guide will help advisors and advisees as we move forward into course selection for Fall 2013. The Associate Deans and Senior Advisors for each college or school have prepared this Guide and it will be available to all faculty by February 15th. It will be especially helpful to the continuing students who opt into the new Core.
Each school or college will determine the best way to explain the information contained in the guide, and each school or college will prepare specific guidelines for their continuing sophomore and junior students, based on the approved policies found in the guide. We want the continuing students to be able to understand the new Core and their options for moving into it in relation to their major and college requirements for graduation. We want all continuing students who adopt the new Core to do so to their advantage, and therefore it will be imperative that colleges and schools support the students as they gather information and make this transition.
Additional Proposals for New Courses:
Thanks to many LMU faculty who submitted interesting and exciting courses, we have approved 400 new courses and flags in the new Core curriculum. Among them are more than 50 new FYS courses. Although the deadline for inclusion in the Fall 2013 has passed, the new Core curriculum is a vibrant and dynamic entity. As such, we encourage you to continue submitting applications for new Core courses for Spring 2013 and thereafter. The two due dates to submit Core course proposals this semester are March 1st and April 15th. We encourage everyone to apply. The course approval committees will review the course proposals within one month of the rolling due dates.
For more information consult your Dean’s office or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
