The Baccalaureate Core Director search committee invites you to meet two finalists:
Campus forums are open to all OSU faculty, staff, students, and invited external partners. The candidates will give a short presentation on their experiences related to this position and respond to the following:
The Fall 2019 Faculty Senate Listening Sessions revealed both students and faculty were concerned 1) the number of courses and categories in the Baccalaureate Core is larger than ideal, and 2) the purpose of the Baccalaureate Core is not well understood. Faculty Senate will ultimately decide on a new model that addresses these issues. What do you see as your role in the process and how would you, as Baccalaureate Core Director, partner with Faculty Senate, the Baccalaureate Core Committee, and other stakeholders to facilitate an effective implementation of Baccalaureate Core 2.0? Beyond the Baccalaureate Core 2.0 implementation, how will you work to improve the long-term effectiveness of the Baccalaureate Core at OSU?
The forums will be recorded. A survey link will be shared at the end of the forums to collect feedback from those who attend in person and those who view the recording. The search committee greatly appreciates your input.
With kind regards,
Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education
