Global Miami Plan Foundation Courses

Faculty course proposals for one of the GMP Foundation requirements can use the following checklist to prepare to submit their course (s) to the Course Information Management (CIM) system:

  1. Identify which of the five GMP foundation categories (and seven sub-categories) are most suited to the proposal. With few exceptions, most GMP courses hold one or two designations at the 300 level or below.
    • Faculty can find general descriptions of each category and sub-category.

    • All proposals should include a description of the course, course goals, and a statement noting that the course meets the selected GMP requirement (s) A short student-centered explanation of how and why it is a GMP course and what that means for students would be helpful.

  2. Include specific information in CIM about how the course will meet the two GMP Learning Outcomes for Written Communication and Critical Thinking. Typically, these outcomes are advanced through assignments.
  3. Identify the two additional outcomes the course will include with a brief explanation of how those outcomes will be addressed in the course
  4. Upload the course syllabus, which includes:
    • A description of the course, course goals, and a statement noting that the course meets the Global Miami Plan requirement(s) selected. A short student-centered explanation of how the two major student learning outcomes of Written Communication and Critical Thinking will be met also is expected.
    • One or two sample assignments that meet the Written Communication and Critical Thinking SLOs

When you are ready to submit for approval, you must use the Curriculum Management Forms for courses or programs on the Registrar's website. If you have questions about the CIM system, please contact Shelly Jarrett Bromberg, (jarretam@MiamiOH.edu) .
