Intellectual Foundations Program for Faculty
IFP Approval Procedures
The Core Curriculum Committee (CCC), a subcommittee of the University Undergraduate Programs Committee (UUPC), oversees the development, implementation, and assessment of the Intellectual Foundations Program which was revised in spring 2015. The CCC includes three representatives from the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters, two representatives from the Charles E. Schmidt College of Science, and one representative from each of the other colleges offering undergraduate degrees. The Dean of Undergraduate Studies chairs the committee and is a non-voting member of the CCC as well as the Director of Assessment for Undergraduate Studies. The CCC reviews courses for inclusion in the Intellectual Foundations Program. Please click here for the submission procedures.
Learning outcomes are associated with each category of the Intellectual Foundations Program. Faculty are asked to provide the Core Curriculum Committee a "road map" of where each outcome can be found in their course content and how will it be measured. Some outcomes might be measured by student papers or exams. Other outcomes might be measured by projects, class discussions, portfolios, field experiences, presentations for example.
Please click on the appropriate link below to submit your outcomes of the course.

Once a new IFP Assessment Committee is formed, your information will be provided to the committee to assist them in redesigning and implementing the next assessment cycle.
