Faculty Council Votes to Release Curriculum Plan

By Amy B. Mcintosh

The Faculty Council voted yesterday to release the draft proposal of the new core curriculum to the full Faculty and the press after making minor changes in its content.

The curriculum report will go to the printer this week and copies will be distributed within a week or ten days.

Yesterday's meeting was the first time the Faculty Council has discussed the core curriculum proposals. The Council also began debate over how best to implement the proposals if they are approved by the full Faculty.

The proposals contain recommendations for revising the current General Education program into five areas of study--Letters and Arts, History, Social and Philosophical Analysis, Mathematics and Science and Foreign Languages and Culture.

The draft report discusses what types of courses should be taught in each area and how many courses students should be required to take.
