Global Miami Plan Course Proposals
While students can petition to make their own revisions to the plan, course proposals serve as a way for faculty and departments to ensure the university's continued dialogue with the principles that compose liberal learning at Miami University: thinking critically, understanding contexts, engagement with other learners, reflecting and acting. The list of approved Global Miami Plan courses also provides guidance to students as to what classes can best help them develop and exercise these skills that they require as active, global citizens.
The Liberal Education Council (LEC), comprising representatives from student affairs, student government, the library and university senate, regional campuses, and faculty from each of the five divisions, evaluates course proposals to help students meet their Global Miami Plan requirements.
The Liberal Education Council invites proposals for Foundation courses, Thematic Sequences, and Senior Capstones. Faculty interested in proposing courses are encouraged to view the assessment and program review tools relating to the aims of liberal education on this website (coming soon). Assessment tools are also available on the CELTUA web site.
In addition, you are encouraged to speak with the University Director of Liberal Education, John Tassoni (firstname.lastname@example.org), who can provide feedback on drafts prior to LEC review and indicate additional resources and conversations regarding liberal education. We are also interested in any insights you can provide as to how we might continue to enhance liberal education at Miami University.
