Core Curriculum 2025

The Core Curriculum 2025 Committee has the important task of developing recommendations for a new or revised general education program that could be required of all undergraduates on the Twin Cities campus who are admitted in Fall 2025 and beyond. Throughout their work, the committee will be consulting broadly with University stakeholders, including but not limited to students, faculty, advisors, administrators, and employers, and will be sharing regular updates with the University community.

The current liberal education system has been in place with only minimal adjustments at the University for close to 30 years. Since 1991, students, their employers, faculty, and indeed the entire world have undergone significant changes. Questions of what students need to learn and what a modern general education program at a comprehensive R-1 flagship university should look like will be explored with the goal of best preparing our students for a complex world.
