Silver Core objectives

Suggested student learning outcomes and assessment methods

The Silver Core curriculum includes 14 core objectives in four veins. Courses may either build a foundation for an objective, develop competency in the objective, integrate the objective into the core capstone course or satisfy an objective outright. All courses which satisfy an objective must be verified by the Core Curriculum Board. Verification requires that a substantial amount of student effort, roughly equivalent to one credit or more and be devoted to the objective. Courses which integrate or satisfy an objective must also assess student learning outcomes.

When proposing a course to satisfy one or more of the following Core Objectives, refer to the core course proposal checklist.
