There’s a form for that.

If you need to add, revise, or delete a course, please fill out a Curricular Action Request form (CAR). For minor bulk changes you can use a Temporary Relief for Untying Curricular Knots: Bulk Minor Curricular Action Request form (TRUCK).


The Common Curriculum requires both breadth and depth in the courses that students take. Students can either 'go deep' by taking three courses in one TOI, or they can complete a faculty-developed Theme. If you have an idea for a Theme, submit a proposal.

I need help with my syllabus.

For your reference, we've provided a Common Curriculum syllabus template developed by CETL that we recommend using. This page also contains a syllabus checklist, and sample syllabi should be coming soon.

Syllabus Template

In our transition to the Common Curriculum, we are emphasizing the need for strong student learning outcomes. The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) can help.

Learning Objectives

By nature, the Common Curriculum should be accessible to all students, so help us make your course accessible by using the resources available from the CETL.

Course Accessibility
