FKL New Course Proposal Process

In 2010 the General Education Council announced the completion and full implementation of the General Education portion of the Foundations of Knowledge and Learning (FKL) Core Curriculum. Proposals for courses intended for the General Education portion of the curriculum are no longer considered. Proposals for FKL Capstone Learning Experience courses may still be submitted.
