Core review, Monday, 9/18, 3:30 p.m., Sheehy-Farmer 117, plus co-chair’s report

The second core review meeting of the academic year is scheduled for Monday, 9/18, 3:30-5:00 p.m., in Sheehy-Farmer 117. The agenda is the same as that of our first meeting, namely, to work toward tying up loose ends from academic year 2016-2017: among others, details of the Learning Community/College Seminar; the array of courses under Social Science I; the aims of Natural Science II: “Science and Society”; and the category “Global Connections” in the cluster entitled “Global Citizenship.”

On 9/18, the committee’s focus likely will be on Social Science I and the Learning Community/College Seminar.

During the committee’s first meeting, on 9/6, members voted unanimously to place Social Science I in the core gateway and to place Natural Science II: “Science and Society” (or “Science in Society”?) in the cluster entitled “The Person and the Common Good.”
