Courses in OSU’s Baccalaureate Core are reviewed through two different processes. All reviews are performed by the Faculty Senate’s Baccalaureate Core Committee (BCC), comprised of faculty from across OSU.
These reviews are an important way to ensure all students are provided with the general education curriculum mandated by the OSU faculty. This also follows accreditation standards from the NWCCU, which recognizes the central role of faculty in establishing quality measures, assessing student learning, and improving instruction programs.
Heath Henry, Assessment Coordinator, is here to support you in creating a new course, improve current courses, prepare your course for category review or ensure your syllabus meets minimum requirements. You can request an individual meeting with Heath or a workshop!
Curriculum Management, Assessment and Accreditation, and the Center for Teaching and Learning hosts training sessions prior to the Category Review deadlines. The WIC and DPD Directors will also offer trainings and workshops. The goal of training sessions is to advise faculty on Bacc Core requirements and how to prepare materials for a more effective and smooth review process.
We highly encourage faculty to participate in training opportunities!
