University Studies Program Proposal Approved by Faculty Senate

Following years of work by hundreds of members of our campus community, the UW Oshkosh Faculty Senate approved the University Studies Program proposal on Tuesday afternoon, March 13, 2012.

With the goals of advancing liberal education and enhancing student learning, this complex general education reform process has required scholarly inquiry, flexibility, openness, innovation, multidisciplinary dialogue, and trust.

Congratulations, UW Oshkosh.
