Comments from Institute on General Education & Assessment Retreat
Rodger reported on the meeting he and four members of the CCST attended in Baltimore this past week.
Five-five colleges participated, mainly four year schools. Rodger reported that when designing the CORE
Tier system LEAP rubics were integrated into the system. This tier system was rated very highly in
comparison to other colleges, However, there are no pre-requisites included in the system that would
insure success in higher level classes. It was agreed the tier system should be reviewed with plan
including curricula, pedagogy and process with a timeline. Including pre-requisites may bring some
questions from some disciplines. The final plan from CCST will assess CORE objectives. The plan is
due to vice presidents by May 2013. Presentations will be made at forums for more input from faculty.
The Steering Team will draft recommendation and send back to campuses for final review. Will then
submit to vice presidents and then to Chancellor’s Cabinet for review. The final document has to be to
the Coordinating Board by November 2013. Rodger noted that Kendra Vaglienti is on the CORE
Rodger also mentioned another recommendation changing CORE curriculum date. Change will include
area universities to look at setting up articulation and alignment agreements taking what the universities
believe is needed for students to achieve success in four year schools. Curriculum chairs from UNT and
UNT Dallas, UTD, UTA and TWU will be invited.
Next Week: Finalize current tech/cap funds $16,000
Add funds in $7,500 to the tech/fund 11,000
Will also look at $18,000 in Perkins fund
Finalize Perkins for 2012-2013
