Loyola University Chicago

University Core

Faculty Resources

As of October 2020, we are not accepting new courses into the Core Curriculum, in preparation for a review of the Core Curriculum during the 2021-22 academic year. 

During the 2021-22 academic year, Core Development Working Groups (CDWGs) were formed, consisting of 40 faculty from around the University. These groups will work within the current structure of the Core Curriculum to propose the following:

1) Refined goals, objectives, and learning outcomes for each Core Area of Inquiry

2) Opportunities for the development of new Core courses 

Proposals for new Core courses in the areas of opportunity identified by the CDWGs will be requested and reviewed beginning in Fall 2022.

Additional plans for the Core Curriculum include a plan for continual evaluation of the Core as program monitoring to inform continuous improvement.
