Evaluating the Core Curriculum

Courses approved to meet Foundational Learning Outcomes (FLOs) are required to submit evidence of learning every three (3) years.

For AY 2021-22, courses meeting the Humanities (HUM) Outcomes are due to submit evidence.

Instructors who are required to submit evidence files will be contacted by UCC Leadership. Questions about this process or the submission of evaluation materials should be directed to UCC Leadership.

The UCC recognizes that circumstances beyond the control of the instructor may occasionally necessitate the extension or deferral of a deadline for submitting evaluation materials. In the interest of fairness and equity to all instructors, the request for a deferral must be received as soon as possible after being notified of this process (instructors are notified at the beginning of the applicable term in which their course is offered). Instructors can request a deferral by completing the Deferral Request Form.
