University-wide Navigation


Working in a campus-wide initiative through the institution’s shared governance structure, the university will assess, evaluate and revise the institution’s general education curriculum – the UK Core – with a focus on ensuring students are provided with the skills to succeed in a fast-changing and sophisticated workplace that will require technical competency but also the capacity to engage in critical thinking and constructive dialogue as our graduates must lead companies and communities in the process of forging solutions rather than divisions.
