Charge to the University Committee on the Undergraduate Curriculum.
Lawrence, Francis L.
This paper presents the long and short versions of the charge to the University Committee on the Undergraduate Curriculum designed to establish Rutgers' university-wide goals of excellence against which each college will be asked to measure its curriculum. The purpose of the Committee's task was to help the colleges meet the challenges of high standards in basic skills, coherence in general education, and integration in major programs. The Committee is charged with the following: (1) to develop a clear and specific articulation of the courses and skill levels that incoming students must have to succeed at Rutgers; (2) to suggest means through which colleges and departments can address the special curricular and teaching issues in science, mathematics, and engineering in order to revive student interest and increase competence, and to recommend high, assessment-based standards for communication skills and means of achieving the new standards; and (3) to recommend university-wide goals that will enable colleges to assess whether their required courses fulfill Rutgers' role as the open door to opportunity and achievement.
