University Studies Program (USP)
Name for Proposed General Education Program

  • To communicate the magnitude of this change for our academic community, many possible names for the proposed program have been considered.
  • Ultimately, the etymology of the word university was compelling to the reform team. "University" means both "combined in one" or "whole" and a "community of scholars."
  • "University Studies" is envisioned as a cohesive liberal education program that builds a vibrant community connecting teachers and learners across campus.
