"The Baccalaureate Core Curriculum has been in existence at OSU since 1988, and it is time to review it to determine whether it meets the needs of students in these times. An Ad Hoc Review Committee has been charged by the Executive Committee of the OSU Faculty Senate to review the Bacc Core, determine whether updates are needed, and if they are, recommend specific changes for the purpose of enhancing undergraduate education at OSU. The Ad Hoc Committee views input from OSU faculty and students as a vital component of our review process. We are hosting a series of spring quarter focus groups in order to gather campus views about the structure and implementation of the Bacc Core: For Undergraduates: Tuesday, April 14th and Wednesday, April 15th from 4-5pm in MU 207 For Teaching Faculty: Tuesday, April 21st from 4-5pm in MU 207 and Thursday, April 23rd from 8-9am in MU 211 For GTAs: Tuesday, April 28th from 8-9am and 4-5pm in MU 207 No registration required.
