The Common Curriculum Planning Committee (CCPC), led by Senior Vice Provost and Associate Vice Chancellor for Academic Planning and Assessment Katherine Eggert and Dean and Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education Daryl Maeda, wrapped up multiple open forum presentations to campus of the CCPC’s draft proposal for a common curricular experience for CU Boulder undergraduate students. 

The CCPC worked throughout the 2021–22 academic year to develop a draft of the common curriculum’s learning objectives and outcomes for campus comment, basing their discussions on a wealth of input received from faculty, students and staff after an invitation for white papers and during a spring 2021 listening tour of more than 80 departments, programs, student groups and student support units. 

“I want to thank all of the committee members who rose to the challenge of developing an exciting draft plan that embodies the university’s values and that synthesizes learning goals applicable to all our undergraduate students,” Eggert said. “I also want to thank the many members of our community who have already given the committee valuable feedback on the draft.”

Comments on the draft proposal will be accepted throughout the summer and may be submitted to The committee will reconvene in the fall to finalize the proposal before submitting it to the provost. An implementation team will be formed in late fall, following a faculty approval process whose structure will be determined in partnership with the Boulder Faculty Assembly.
