The University's Liberal Education requirements have been in place for twenty years, with some revisions made to them in 2007-2008. While these requirements have served students and the University very well, regular reassessment is healthy.
A Pre-Planning Committee met over a period of 18 months and during that time fostered preliminary open conversations on liberal education. The following information by date has been distributed to the University of Minnesota faculty community for review:
- October 29, 2019: revised draft report and proposed visuals (Plan A and Plan D)
- October 16, 2019: revised draft report and updated visual representations
- May 2019: initial draft report and proposed plan visuals
These were discussed and voted on at the December 5, 2019 Faculty Senate.
